  • Discussion Groups focused around:
    • Workforce Development – untapped resources; changing demographics; fair labor laws
    • Healthcare Challenges – what care is available; where are the gaps; public charge concerns
    • Waking Dreams – video resource and tool for classroom or discussion groups
