Reimagining Wellness


We forget to handle the simple things that help ourselves function optimally within our own environment.  Reimagining Wellness Live Conversations have evolved from getting together socially during the pandemic to being YOUR web of support network!

Some of these Live Conversations have specific topics and some are more general. Reimagining Wellness is about creating a support community where we can learn from and rely on each other.

Reimagine Wellness live events are not eligible for continuing education credit, unless noted.
