KEYNOTE PRESENTATIONS

Powerful Strategies for Recovery, Awakening the Healer Within
Patricia E. Deegan, Ph.D. | Principal, Pat Deegan & Associates LLC | Adjunct Professor, Dartmouth College
We don't always have to look outside ourselves for the answers. Sometimes the answers to recovery, healing and wellness come from within. Join Pat Deegan for a keynote address during which we will explore our inner wisdom and specific startegies for futhering our recovery and wellness.

Keep HOPE Alive!
Tamra Oman
| Human Services Program Coordinator, Wisconsin Resource Center | AODA Counselor
Tamra is a living example that even the seemingly insurmountable is possible if you KEEP HOPE ALIVE! If you woke up this morning, there's hope. Imagine if we spent as much energy focusing on all of our amazing possibilities as we do on all of the challenges we face. Tamra has come to realize that some of her greatest moments of growth and change have come out of some of her darkest times. She believes that all of those moments have become some of her greatest assets in her life's work of loving and helping others. You are beautiful. You are worth it. You deserve it! KEEP HOPE ALIVE!
