2013 Community Wellness Conference – The Art of Active Healthy Living

Hosted by the Mississippi Coast Interfaith Disaster Task Force, the 2013 Community Wellness Conference is May 22-23, 2013 at the Biloxi Civic Center. The theme for this year’s conference is “The Art of Active Health Living”.

“This training opportunity will include speakers and breakout sessions by primary and
mental health care professionals; nutritional and fitness professionals as well as a range of topics to promote community wellness projects. [IDTF believes] that community wellness starts with education and a proactive approach to decreasing the incidence of illness related to lifestyle and health choices. This year’s conference will offer more opportunities for participants to develop strategies to inform and involve the public in making Mississippi a
healthier place to live. The Planning Committee is also working on providing CEUs for health care professions and CMEs for physicians, nurses and others in the wellness community. Last year the Community Wellness Conference provided up to 13 CEUs for qualified participants. Some of the workshops that will be offered are Bullying Prevention Methods, Ethics In the Age of Social Media, Alzheimer’s Disease and Caregivers,
Art Therapy Techniques, Total Health, Risking Connections and Trauma Informed
Care among others.  [They] anticipate having 4 plenary sessions and 24 breakout sessions.”
