    The Community Education Initiative is always looking to offer wellness programming for school nurses and community healthcare providers. This is an opportunity for renewal and to refresh your energies as a school nurse-for yourself and your students, colleagues and family!

    We will provide an opportunity for you to learn new ways of incorporating balance in your life and the lives of others. Refresh your energy, renew your spirit, gain a new awareness and leave with a sense of relaxation. Come with an open heart and the intention to learn something new!
