We are also excited to announce that the Center for Health and Learning will be putting on the premier event of the online portion of annual meeting
, their "UMatter" training. A condensed portion of this training was put on in October during one of our Midweek Meet, and it was unbelievably well received. With one of our focuses this year being combatting the Diseases of Despair, we knew we had to put on the full event.
Please use the link below to register for the "Umatter" training, which will be held during the online portion of annual meeting from 12pm to 2pm.
It is necessary to register for this event individually, because you will be sent additional resources related to the training before the event- dont worry, there is no homework!
Again, we are very excited for CHL to put on this training, and hope to see you all at the online and in-person events.
