Healthy Champaign County Meeting

Friday - Oct 17, 2014

The next Healthy Champaign County Meeting will be held from 1-2pm on Tuesday, October 21 in the North Conference Room of the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District, 201 W. Kenyon Rd. in Champaign. This meeting is open to the public.

Jason Scott, founder and president of the Mindful Teacher Foundation (www.mindfulteacher.org), will present an overview of his organization's mission of providing mindfulness training for teachers in local K-12 schools. Research has shown that mindfulness can be beneficial to the health and well-being of practitioners by reducing stress and improving immune function. Following the presentation, HCC goals and strategies will be shared and members will be able to join subcommittees.
