Welcome to the Teton Wellness Institute
The Teton Wellness Institute thanks you for supporting and inspiring our programs and vision since the organization began in 2002. Over the past eleven years TWI has produced eight Teton Wellness Festivals, fifteen Pathways to Healing Speaker Series and two Wellness Summits which together hosted over 300 speakers. TWI also initiated monthly practitioner group discussions to foster deeper communication and understanding of complementary medicine for healthcare professionals and practitioners. Another accomplishment was the creation of the Community Health Information (CHI) Center which opened its doors in the lobby of St. John’s Hospital in 2008. The CHI Center was established as a partnership between TWI and St. John’s Medical Center to address the critical need for accessible health and wellness information and outreach programs for Teton County residents.
The Teton Wellness Institute would like to share with you our ongoing commitment to health & wellness educational programming in Teton County. By broadening our relationship with SJMC and collaborating with the newly established Wellness Department at St. John’s Medical Center, the Teton Wellness Institute is merging with the Community Health Information Center, under the direction of Julia Heemstra. The focus of this merger is to create comprehensive outreach and worksite wellness programs that support people in reaching optimum health & attaining their wellness goals. St. John’s Wellness Department, the CHI Center and TWI share the vision to promote community health and wellness programming in Teton County.
As of July 1, 2013 the Teton Wellness Institute will become inactive TWI will continue to retain its 501 c 3 status until January, 2015.
