Waisman WIN Distance Learning
The Waisman WIN (Wellness Inclusion Nursing) program is excited to announce a new series of online training opportunities for individuals around the state of Wisconsin. This series provides expertise, training, and resources through videoconference workshops for individuals who support the overall health and well being of adults and children with IDDs in their communities.
Access to resources and clinical services focused on the specialized healthcare needs of individuals with disabilities may not be available in many rural and underserved communities in Wisconsin and beyond. To meet this need, the Waisman Center aims to expand access to its specialized resources and expertise through WIN videoconference workshops.
Who should participate?
Family members, caregivers, residential and vocational staff, and others who support adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs) in the community.
