The third annual Oregon School Employee Wellness Conference is right around the corner, and you know what that means? Three days in beautiful Bend, Oregon to mingle with school employees, public health experts, medical carrier representatives and community members who are passionate about school employee wellness!
The Oregon Education Association Choice Trust in partnership with other organizations hosts a free two day conference that focuses on creating a culture of wellness in the school setting. This conference isn’t for you if you like to sit in a lecture hall and listen to talking heads. This conference is all about putting into practice what you learn. The OR SEW Conference is an opportunity to learn best practices to promote health and wellness in the school, learn strategies to reduce stress and foster resiliency and fuel your passion for health. Yes, there will be some talking heads, but they will expect that you get up and get moving! Physical activity and movement is incorporated into all of the presentations. Yoga, tai chi, runs and walks are also part of the agenda. Plus, doesn’t it always seem to be sunny in Bend, Oregon?
The conference Key Note speaker is Greg Bell. He is the author of Water the Bamboo® – Unleashing the Potential of Teams and Individuals. He has a way of motivating, inspiring and encouraging participants to problem solve. A native to Oregon and a father himself, he is sure to be a conference highlight.
This year enjoy Spring Break while learning about wellness.
