The Jackson Hole valley lies in Teton County, Wyoming. Wyoming assigns each county a number to identify its license plates – Teton County is county 22, and “22 in 21″ is a symposium looking at Teton County in the 21st century.

And not just Teton County, Wyoming in particular, but the greater Tetons region. In the view of 22 in 21, Jackson Hole is one community spanning two states and at least three counties: Teton WY, Teton ID, and Lincoln WY.

22 in 21 is an effort to help the greater Tetons community understand itself better, and in so doing help shape a future which complements its values, character, and resources. The things 22 in 21 is doing, and the lessons we’re learning, apply not just to the Tetons region, but to any community which inspires passion in its residents.

2015 marks the fourth year of 22 in 21, and the effort has proven so successful that we are expanding it to focus on specific topics critical to the region’s future. Working in conjunction with St. John’s Medical Center, our next symposium is going to be focused on the health of the community. Its title: “22 in 21: The State of Our Health – What You Need to Know.”


“22 in 21: The State of Our Health” is currently accepting signups.

What: 22 in 21: The State of Our Health – What You Need to Know
When: Thursday, April 30, 2015
Time: 8:30 am – 1:30 pm (includes lunch)
Where: Spring Creek Resort
Cost: $25

Tickets are available now, and as with past 22 in 21 events, we expect to sell out.

The day’s agenda will look at our community’s health from three different perspectives.

Setting the big-picture context will be Brian Gragnoloti, Sr. Vice President of the Johns Hopkins Health System and a board member of the American Hospital Association. Mr. Gragnoloti’s remarks will focus on the national health care scene, with an emphasis on the challenges facing small, rural communities.

Other speakers will offer perspectives at the regional level. Mike Tennican, chairperson of St. John’s Medical Center, and Dr. Lou Hochheiser, CEO of St. John’s Medical Center, will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing St. John’s in particular, and the broader Tetons-area community in general. In addition, Julia Heemstra and Sara Salo from St. John’s Wellness will share the findings of the Community Health Needs Assessment as it relates to the hospital’s role in the health of our community.

Following lunch, roundtable discussions will help participants explore the morning’s content, and lay the groundwork for actions which can help Teton County become a healthier, more vibrant community going forward.
