Thank you for your interest in presenting at The Improving Lives Conference, taking place on September 27 and 28, 2022. The Improving Lives Conference will focus on issues impacting Trust beneficiaries: Alaskans who experience mental illness, substance use disorders, intellectual and developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, as well as Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

This year’s conference themes will include:

Behavioral health support across beneficiary groups and the lifespan, including co-occurring disorders
Innovative and Promising Practices for Serving Trust beneficiaries
Strengthening our Continuum of Care for Trust beneficiaries
Incorporating lived experience and beneficiary perspectives into programs and planning

It is the duty of the Trust to provide leadership in the advocacy, planning, implementing, and funding of services and programs that improve the lives and circumstances of Trust beneficiaries. This year’s Improving Lives Conference, the first conference sponsored by the Trust, will meaningfully address behavioral health systems across Trust beneficiary groups, data-driven innovative and promising practices, and strengthening Alaska’s continuum of care. Please join us in Anchorage to learn, gather, network, make connections and share ideas.

This event is currently planned to be in-person, though the Trust will continue to monitor public health indicators related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Speaker applications will be accepted until Friday, July 15, 2022 and will be reviewed by the conference planning committee.

Presentations should be targeted to the conference audience: those who work with Trust-beneficiary serving organizations, providers, and agencies, as well as policy makers, and Trust beneficiaries.
