Exercise with Educators: Health, fitness, network

The International Conference on Residency Education (ICRE) is committed to supporting physician health and well-being in every aspect of its programming – from its scholarly workshops to its social events. Back by popular demand, ICRE’s Exercise with Educators program encourages conference participants to trade their business wear for active wear, and join colleagues for a yoga session, or a guided walk or run around scenic Niagara Falls.. All fitness levels are welcome.

Registration for Exercise with Educators sessions is available through the online registration form. Proceeds from this year’s events will benefit the Breakfast for Learning Program.
