IDEA EXCHANGES (Subject to Change)
During this year’s conference, we will hold Idea Exchanges. These small group, informal conversations will bring up to ten participants together to explore a topic of their choice in health and education. Many of the Idea Exchanges draw connections between these two “siloes” and will bring to life the recommendations of Student Success 2025.
Idea Exchanges provide participants a chance to share and learn collaboratively from others, receive answers to their questions, find ways to get involved, connect work underway and identify opportunities to make progress.
