Join us for our 3rd annual Spotlight on Population Health (SOPHi) awards & Expo, which will be held on Friday, October 13, 2017. The awards will be held at Buffalo RiverWorks located along the banks of the Buffalo River.
SOPHi is a celebration of organizations across the eight counties of Western New York that focuses on Population Health. Through this award ceremony, we hope to educate the WNY community on all the great work being done around the region, and maybe even create some new collaborations!
Nominations are made by community members, with the Population Health Improvement Program (PHIP) Steering Team selecting the awardees. Nominate a project for SOPHi2016 and give them the recognition they deserve!
The Expo will consist of a variety of local vendors and exhibitors that educate on all aspects of health, wellness, fitness, and lifestyle improvements. Interactive demonstrations and health screenings will be available.
SOPHi nominees will have the opportunity to be part of the vendor exhibit area.
