7:00 – 8:00 pm – Networking, resource sharing, and community building
Presenter: Kelsey Lownds, MM, MT-BC, NICU Music Therapist
Description: True self-care is not all about bubble baths and ice cream, it is making the choice to build a life you don’t regularly need to escape from. During this presentation we will reframe what it means to care for ourselves, understand the importance of self-care, and start the process of truly caring for ourselves! A packet will be provided that includes a self-care assessment along with other resources to begin developing an individualized self-care plan, all while increasing understanding of true self-care.
