On August 14, 2019, The Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation will host the annual Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds Institute (HBHMI) at The SunnyBrook Ballroom.This annual conference aims to help educators, administrators and researchers promote wellness as a core component of student achievement. Dozens of private and public school districts—as well as local organizations—attend each year.
This year’s theme is Cultivating a Culture of Wellness in Schools! Focus areas will include:
- Physical Activity/Active Learning
- Healthy Eating/Nutrition Education
- Social and Emotional Learning
- Mental Health
- Capacity Building for Wellness Teams and Champions
After a keynote speaker, attendees will split into breakout sessions on their desired subjects. Some of the classes are Understanding ACEs, Mindful Self-Compassion, Social Emotional Learning and Trauma-Informed Care. Last year, Be the Spark, Yogarate (Yoga and Martial Arts) and Teacher Wellness were the most popular classes. HBHMI caps off with time for awards and networking.
