This year, we’re adding a twist! NWI’s in-person “WellLeader Connect Event” coincides with the National Wellness Conference.  This special add-on event will feature opportunities to interact with our staff, Board of Directors, and other attendees for meals, discussion, and informal gatherings. We will also provide an area to watch the virtual conference together. Lunch is provided July 28 and 29. WellLeader attendees will need to bring their own laptops to participate in the breakout sessions.

A PDF of the WellLeader Connect Event agenda is available for download.
