Summer Learning Series Day 1
Today we had the first day of our summer learning series. Our team had a great time playing get to know you bingo and learning more about each other, especially our newest members. Our guest speaker, Hannah Mell, led us through some exercises to identify what we need to feel safe and courageous in a space and how to apply this to our presentations. This summer learning series was funded through a grant by CHNA 15, and was made possible by Determination of Need funds received from Lahey Hospital & Medical Center and Winchester Hospital. We are so excited to continue our summer training series next week!
