The ACM Mind-Body Connection

Connecting Our Community To A Healthier Future
Allegany College of Maryland is pleased to share a longstanding partnership with the Washington, D.C. based Center for Mind-Body Medicine. Thanks to the generous support of the Maryland Opioid Operational Command Center, in February and March of last year, we were able to bring the Center's full Professional and Advanced training programs to ACM. The 135 local individuals trained, join more than 40 previously trained facilitators to give our community more trained facilitators per capita than anywhere IN THE WORLD! It's remarkable that we have this FREE resource available to our community during this time of unprecedented and unrelenting stress. This project is supported by the Opioid Operational Command Center. The views presented here are those of the grantee organization and not necessarily those of the OOCC, its Executive Director, or its staff.
