We are so pleased to announce that effective immediately, we are now doing business as The Health Education and Resources Institute (THEARI)!

We recently shared that our organization was undergoing some exciting changes. Today, we want to share with you the first major milestone in our journey, our new name! Our staff and Board of Directors deliberated and considered multiple options to find a name which encapsulated the core of what we do, the future direction of our organization, and our team culture.

The types of work we have been doing for 20 years has not changed, and the revised logo continues to capture the work we do for students, providers, and community members. Going forward you will still see the old name in various places as we work through this process. If you have our name and logo listed on your website or directory, please email us here so we can help update our information.
