Making the most out of your practice

A full summary of the workshop will be released soon!

The SOPHIA HIA Practitioner Workshop presents a unique opportunity to participate in strategic field building alongside a diverse group of HIA practitioners, and it is currently one of the few HIA meetings in the world.
