Support Retreat June 30-July 4, 2014
1 week support retreat offers housing, meals, and group therapies to qualifying patients at heavily subsidized rates
Our Support Retreat serves 2 purposes. It allows us to care for patients who otherwise are not able to attend our inpatient retreats, and serves as an introductory session for aspiring young adults interested in anthroposophic medicine, nursing, nutrition, and therapies. Out of many applicants, 8 trainees will be chosen to assist us in our supportive care mission and will be supervised by RSHC staff physicians, nurses, and therapists.
