To help connect family caregivers with the information and services they need, NDSU Extension and SDSU Extension collaborate to offers Caregiver Learning Workshops. This series includes three workshops offered in January, February and March. These workshops are hosted via Zoom over the lunch hour, so that working caregivers might have a better opportunity to participate. In addition to individual participants, efforts will be made to recruit individuals and organizations to host watch parties so that individuals without access to the internet can watch the workshops.
