35th Annual Schumann Lecture: A Stable, Affordable Home is a Prescription for Good Health
Ended October 24

This public lecture is supported by an endowment to the Hitchcock Foundation from the late Helmut Wolfgang Schumann to provide a free lecture by a nationally renowned figure on topics related to healthful living. This year’s lecture will take place following the “Team Up, Take Action: A Conference on Partnering for Health Equity,” co-sponsored by the Vermont Public Health Association, the New Hampshire Public Health Association and Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Though the larger conference is a paid event, the public may attend the Schumann Lecture from 4:30-6 pm for free. No registration is necessary.
