Congratulations to our own Jessica Bourque, who is among the first graduates of the Leadership In Wellness Management course offered by ICAA Education, Inc. (a sister company of the International Council on Active Aging® (ICAA), a professional association that has led, connected and defined the active-aging industry since 2001). The program began in July of 2019 and focused on business management and leadership, with course participants undertaking self-discovery activities, building their knowledge of wellness as it applies to wellness business practices, and leaving with new strategies for enhancing their existing programs or careers.
