NEW!  In response to our Member Survey, we will be holding our second 'Lunch and Learn' Session in February.  Bring your lunch and we'll supply the drinks! 

Our Educational Session on Health and Wellness will focus on Caregiving and Caregivers: A Monumental Challenge in Our Community.  In 2011, unpaid contributions to caregiving were estimated to be $450 billion.  If you are a caregiver, or know someone who is, come hear why this important work is often invisible to others and learn the true cost to individual caregivers, their families, and the community.
