You may register for all five workshops or if you are just looking for some information on one topic you may register for each workshop individually. Each session will include a question and answer portion for all any questions that you may think of along the way.

***Note: As COVID cases remain high in Wisconsin the first workshops will be entirely virtual. We are hopeful that we will be able to offer these workshops in person once things are safer for us to be together in person again.  Once you have registered for a workshop or workshops you will receive an email from us containing a general sylabus, any handout/references for the workshop, and how to log in virtually to your workshop.***
