UW-Green Bay researcher to highlight LIFE Study results at public forum

University of Wisconsin-Green Bay researcher Lora Warner will host a public discussion on the results of the extensive Leading Indicators for Excellence, or LIFE Study, from 9:30-11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 24 at the Neville Public Museum of Brown County, 210 Museum Place, Green Bay.

Warner, an assistant professor of Public and Environmental Affairs and the director of UW-Green Bay’s Center for Public Affairs, was the principal investigator for the large-scale, 1 ½ year study of the quality of life in Northeastern Wisconsin. Monday’s discussion will focus on the Brown County LIFE Study, beginning with a presentation of its findings and themes from 9:30-10:30 a.m. and concluding with a question-and-answer session from 10:30-11 a.m.

“This presentation is offered for the general public to provide an opportunity to learn some of the important findings of the Brown County LIFE Study,” Warner said. “We will explore the 10 aspects of quality of life that were assessed and conclude by discussing the area’s major strengths and opportunities for improvement.”

Local and regional LIFE Study results were rolled out earlier this month, highlighting the common and individual strengths and challenges of Brown County, the Fox Cities and Southern Winnebago County. Warner and the UW-Green Bay Center for Public Affairs, along with the St. Norbert College Strategic Research Institute, conducted the study. It was funded by the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, Brown County United Way and Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce.

Monday’s event is free and open to the public. Warner will host a second forum in November. For more information, visit www.uwgb.edu/cfpa or www.lifestudy.info/.
