Kansas State of Wellness Symposium Priority Registration is Open!
The State of Wellness Symposium is sure to be a fantastic event and an opportunity for participants and partners from across the state to come together around a common purpose, improving health, whether that be at a worksite or in a community.  The symposium is taking place on June 30, 2015 in Newton, KS. See the below agenda and flyer for all of the details!


We are offering priority registration to WorkWell KS participants and partners, Kansas Alliance for Wellness (KAW) partners, and to members and affiliates of the Kansas Hospital Association (KHA).   

After this time frame we will be opening up registration to others across the state doing similar work or interested in working toward improving health.

Tune in for the Next Webinar on May 7th!
 Exercising Leadership: How Do We Speak to Loss?


Some components of WorkWell KS require that we exercise leadership, sometimes asking colleagues and even supervisors to try different (and sometimes uncomfortable) practices.   Participants will discuss opportunities to exercise leadership in the form of speaking to loss.


Amanda Cebula, Director of Progject Development at the Kansas Leadership Center will help webinar participants think through opportunities to exercise leadership by speaking to loss (of donuts, among other things). 



When: Thursday, May 7th at 12 noon - 1 PM
