On June 1st, 2022 Smola Consulting in partnership with Finger Lakes Area School Health Plan Consortium hosted a one-of-a-kind Wellness Professional Development Day. This unique event encouraged wellness champions to learn best practices, network, participate in wellness activities and begin considering and planning wellness activities for their organization. Smola welcomed local leaders in well-being as well as nationally and internationally recognized experts in the field of worksite health promotion. Speakers and presenters included Dr. Darren Morton, creator of The Lift Project, and Sara Martin, CEO of Wellness Council of America (WELCOA).
David Tinnes, Wayne Central School, had this to say after attending:
"I'm connecting with you to express a deep, heartfelt thank you to the Smola Consulting team that made the Smola Consulting Wellness Conference come together. I was richly encouraged and challenged to grow myself, in different ways. As I reflect on my several experiences where you're putting things together, I realize that these gatherings are some of my favorite moments in my life journey. Whether it's the plant-based challenges, working with the Wellness Committee in my district, attending conferences, etc., I have experienced such life-giving encounters. All of this to say, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK. Your work/efforts have a profound impact on countless people's lives."
