The Annual INSPIRE Adolescent Health and Wellness conference has been moved from October 2017 to March 2018 (see below for more details). A collaboration with New Vision Education and Human Service students at GST BOCES has led to a great opportunity.
Steuben Rural Health Network received the Rose's Youth Philanthropist Grant from Community Foundation. The New Visions students will be planning the 9th Annual Inspire Conference. This professional development conference will focus on high priority adolescent health and wellness topics. The students will have the opportunity to develop, plan, and carry out the implementation of the conference.
In addition, the conference will have a Professional Development Track for Professionals, and a Youth Development Track for the Youth (Grades 9-12).
