Our vision is to build a movement of healthy habits. One of the ways we do that is through education. During these free workshops, our staff will share information, resources, and strategies for you to improve your wellbeing.
Each workshop will focus on one of the seven aspects of wellbeing: Health, Safety, Meaning, Connection, Growth, Achievement, and Resiliency.
