   From Trauma to Wellness 
Empowering Communities Toward Healing and Hope

School nurses remain on the front lines focusing on wellness during extraordinary times. We inform, we advocate, we empower, and we continue to make a difference for students, families, staff and communities.

More than ever, during this time of pandemic, we are looking for ways to practice self-care, to find answers and bring hope, and to celebrate lessons learned as we partner toward healing and wholeness.

The conference aim is to equip school nurses with a better understanding of who we are, what we need, and what we bring as we work within our communities toward greater understanding, more effective partnerships, and improved health outcomes.

Conference speakers hope to refresh and empower school nurses to continue bringing knowledge, relationship and influence to promote equity, support wellness, and create safer, more welcoming environments in our vibrant, diverse communities.

We want you with us! Mark your calendar and plan to attend the SNOW Fall 2020 Virtual Conference. You'll be glad you did!
