Come experience the fresh air and breathe in the sights at the spectacular waterfront Gurney's Resort & Marina in Newport, Rhode Island. Home to spectacular scenery, awe-inspiring architecture, rich history, a thriving downtown waterfront and legendary hospitality, Newport is considered by many to be the shining gem in the coastal crown of New England.

Gurney's offers us the perfect venue to refresh and re-energize. Presentations and workshops will help us stay up to date with the latest technologies, placement practices, medical advancements, teaching strategies, as well as enhancing employment opportunities in the field.

"We are never really happy until we try to brighten the lives of others." Helen Keller
