2020 Alaska School Health & Wellness Institute pivoting to online trainings

The 2020-2021 school year will be different in many ways from what Alaskans have become accustomed to in the past. As we confront the many changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic our Alaskan resiliency and community spirit are guiding the way forward. The 2020 Alaska School Health and Wellness Institute (SHWI) will also have a different look this year. Instead of a face to face meeting in October, we will be working to include the many important topics usually covered by the SHWI into the many on-line training opportunities related to the COVID-19 response happening throughout the fall. We will reassess in January whether a face to face conference in the spring is possible and update the website at that time.

Please take note of the scheduled training opportunities below:
