Back to School Resources

Note from the editor: The INSHAPE summer professional learning institute was a tremendous success. Over 1,000 registrants accessed a wide array of world-class sessions. Ninety-four percent of attendees said they were either satisfied or very satisfied. This event was made possible by a grant from the Indiana State Department of Health. A special 'thank you' to Lisa Greathouse, events chair. We will be announcing more professional development opportunities soon. In the meantime, check out these "back to school" resources.
