We canceled the 4-day HLWD Leader Training in Spooner due to very low interest (2 registered when normally we’re at 8-10 by this time: 07.15.2018). If you were planning on that training – please fill out the application and select “General Interest” in the training location drop-down. This way I can formally track who is actually still in need of a 2018 HLWD training. DO NOT pay any applications fees – this is just a placeholder – this is not a confirmation of a training spot.


Any questions or concerns, please contact Michelle Comeau michelle.comeau@wihealthyaging.org
