Building a Happier, Healthier Community Together – Five Years of Collaboration


Connect With Peers.  Learn New Research & Trends.  Celebrate Success.


Join us at Providence Institute for a Healthier Community’s Fifth Annual Edge of Amazing where we will look back on key health and well-being discoveries, programs, initiatives and advancements that have helped advance and redefine how we think about and view health. Then we will dive deep into the current state of health and well-being in Snohomish County and showcase initiatives that are taking place right now to move the needle on improving the health and well-being of our Community.



Edge of Amazing was conceived in 2015 as a collaborative platform to bring together people from a wide array of private and public organizations and businesses to improve community health and well-being across Snohomish County and beyond. Over the last five years, hundreds of passionate people have come together at Edge of Amazing to learn new research and trends, amplify efforts, create solutions, close gaps, and increase the positive impact we can make together in improving the health and well-being for our community.
