IPUL's E-News for January 29, 2020
Here are the highlights of our recent activity online. Not everything is included due to timeliness. If an advertised event already took place, we've left it off.
IPUL Vaccine Resources Page Added
With the ongoing rollout of the Coronavirus Vaccine in Idaho, IPUL has added a page specifically dedicated to that, with information on the process, as well as information on how to sign up to be vaccinated.

You can find this page on our website here:

This includes lots of excellent resources, for example the Act Early Idaho COVID 19 Resiliency Toolkit, Found here
IPUL Live - Lunch and Learn from January 27:
Sarah Tueller
IPUL was live this week, covering the topic of self-care. When you take care of others all the time, its incredibly important to take care of yourself.

Sarah and Melissa host a fast conversation about this topic!

We know what you're thinking...self-care? Who has time for that? Well, grab your lunch and join us for 15 minutes or so and find out how easy it can actually be, even if you might have to sneak away and hide in the closet or bathroom.

You can click the above image to watch the recording of this lunch and learn, or click this link to do the same.
