Resilience and Wellbeing Summit

Registration open now!  
We invite professionals, caretakers, and leaders throughout and beyond the Cedar Rapids Corridor to join us for a day filled with learning and growth! You may be familiar with Tanager’s annual symposium, but this year, Tanager, the Meraki Institute of Learning, and The Restoration Project are partnering together to bring to you our first Resilience & Wellbeing Summit!
At this year’s summit, you will have the opportunity to attend keynote speakers, gain new insights, knowledge, and tools during breakout sessions across multiple tracks (professionals, caretakers, & leaders), and end the day networking with attendees and presenters during our social hour!

We believe better care leads to better outcomes.
