Embracing Change: All Of It! 

Date and Time: April 30 from 10:30 a.m.
to 1:30 p.m.

Location: Oakwood Village University Woods, Westmorland Room, 6205 Mineral Point Road.

Have you ever wondered, "How should I handle those things that are ahead of me that I feel unprepared for?" or "How can I handle life's curveballs?" Dr. Kristin Litzelman, a Doctor of Population Health Sciences and UW-Extension Faculty Member, is here to help! 

This SAILing Into The Future workshop is a great first step if you're feeling unprepared for what lies ahead or you're looking to learn more about how to effectively plan for change.  Key points include: learning how people often respond to common life changes, describing your own idea of independence, and applying tools and strategies to thrive. A variety of activities will include a presentation, small group discussion, and self-assessments and readings.  

Past participants in this workshop called it "informative," "eye-opening," "hopeful," "stimulating," "thought-provoking," and "encouraging!"
