Dear Community,

It is with great disappointment I must let you know that in light of the current global health situation, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Growing Healthy Communities Conference.

We know from your past feedback how powerful gathering together on this day has been. That being said, take comfort and pride in knowing we are a community of people who care about changing the health and wellness of our kids, schools and families and will gather again sometime in the near future.

Stay safe, responsible and calm during these trying times and remember we grow stronger together.
