The conference planning committee is excited to also offer a Motivational Interviewing Training Specific to Immunizations workshop on June 20! 

Trevor Manthey, MSD, Ph.D. of Manthey Consulting will lead a motivational interviewing training specific to immunizations. Motivational interviewing is an evidence-based and culturally sensitive way to speak with hesitant patients about getting vaccinated. The goal of motivational interviewing is to help people manage mixed feelings and move toward healthy behavior change that is consistent with their values and needs.  The workshop will run 8:30am - 2:30pm with lunch provided.  The registration fee is $30 and is limited to 100 attendees.
