2020 HMA National Conference 

DATE: September 13-15, 2020

LOCATION: Techny Towers Conference and Retreat Center, Techny, IL

DESCRIPTION: Wisdom is seeing and understanding life as a whole. Wisdom is gained through experience, acquisition of knowledge and honing the ability to apply that knowledge with good judgement. When professions and communities share wisdom, this ideally results in a common vision. That common vision fosters the development of a unified voice. The ministry of creating healthier communities is an ongoing process in which we are continually growing in wisdom. Sharing that wisdom provides the inspiration, guidance and tools to encourage and sustain faith leaders, faith community nurses and lay health ministers in fostering body, mind and spirit health.
