Support Retreat June 19-24, 2017

 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, several trainees will be chosen to assist us in  our supportive care mission and will be supervised by RSHC staff physicians, nurses, and therapists.
