2019 Peer Support Best Practices Workshop

Posted on:

Save the date! On December 5th in Baltimore, Maryland, CNF will be hosting our second annual Peer Support Best Practices Workshop (formerly Peer Support Bootcamp).

The workshop’s goal is for attendees to learn how to build, expand and promote peer support programs . We are fortunate to be co-hosting this endeavor with the American Epilepsy Society (AES) and will be hosting the event the day before the AES Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. This partnership doesn’t limit our scope of peer support training to epilepsy-related conditions. The training content is applicable to all organizations providing peer support for caregivers of children with neurologic conditions.

There will be no charge to attendees for the workshop, meals or materials. Attendees will be responsible for their own travel and lodging. Watch for updates with information on how to register.
