From our partners, colleagues, and friends who helped plan and attended the 2nd Annual Black History Month Community Wellness Fair, we want to say THANK YOU! We were so thrilled you were able to join us and participate in so many fruitful conversations, connect and learn from one another. We truly hope that you enjoyed the varying sessions we offered and found the information shared helpful and transferable to your personal and professional careers.

Attached, please find the Official Wellness Fair Toolkit. We hope you will be able to use this throughout the year, share it with others, and start conversations about the contents of the toolkit that take place beyond Black History Month.
