monthly sessions

Learning From the Best.
Every month emphasizes a specific topic and features a main session led by an expert in the field. An additional practice-based workshop that offers hands-on instruction and advice through collaborative learning and skill sharing takes place in the weeks following to review and implement best practices discussed during the main session. Participants create robust and expanding networks of peers and professional contacts and opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.
