This school year, we will be hosting regular Coffee Connections events for Washington school-based health centers (SBHCs). This series provides an informal platform for you to connect with SBHC colleagues working across Washington state. Each session will have a guiding topic and some prompts for small group discussion. Mainly though these events will be a time for collective learning, sharing, and networking.
Our first Coffee Connections event will be at 9am on Friday, October 8. Please register HERE.
We look forward to having you join us! Please feel free to invite any staff who may have missed the original invite.
