A Letter From The NECHA President
Elizabeth Drexler-Hines, MPH, MCHES President, New England College Health Association
Happy New Year! I hope that you were able to spend time with family and friends over the holidays and also had time to rest and refresh. If anyone is feeling like me, I appreciate the renewal of a new year. I also recognize all of the hard work that lies ahead of us in college health for the year. This past week was very busy and it was also a good reminder that staying energized and refreshed for another semester is going to take some effort on my part. For me, that is a commitment to getting back to a daily mindfulness practice. For you, that may be something different. But I do hope that you are also able to incorporate those things into your daily work life, in any way possible, that keeps you passionate, healthy, and able to love the work that you do. I am also looking forward to the opportunity to incorporate some of the things that I learned at the Annual NYSCHA/NECHA meeting this semester. From new information about cannabis, assessment strategies, and exploring restorative justice practices, the information that I took from the meeting has me approaching my work with new perspectives and practices. I am always grateful for the amazing work that comes from our network of professionals and the willingness to share it. READ MORE
