"Back to School" Conversation Series

ABMP recently sent a school reopening survey to the education community to hear your reopening concerns, strategies and needs for support. Thank you to the 100+ schools who responded!

After compiling the results, the predominant reopening concerns were related to social distancing, sanitation guidelines, student clinic protocols, and future COVID-19 exposure risks. In talking with schools across the country, we’ve found many have great strategies in place to handle these challenges, so we asked a few to share their plans via our “Back-to-School” Conversation Series below.

We hope you find the information these schools share to be valuable and we invite you to join the conversation in support of the massage education community at large! A heartfelt thank you to the Colorado School of Massage Therapy and Mind Body Institute for getting the conversation going!
