INTRODUCTION OF GUESTS:
Envisioning Wellness – Tim Horn
The WIN coalition has not had an envisioning wellness meeting in a while. The members discussed asking individuals in the community to come present to the WIN members. We also thought about having a movie or documentary to show as an Envisioning Wellness presentation as well. During the conversation a member asked Christine Babcock, the Tribal Family Youth Specialist, and Danielle Clark, TWIDS, to present on what their job entail through the tribe. Danielle and Christine made a date to present about their jobs on May 1, 2018.
