Making the Move Workshop

Aerial view of downtown Rochester, Minnesota.

We're pleased to sponsor this workshop to welcome and introduce spouses/significant others of residents and fellows to the Rochester community. Our goal with this workshop is to be a conduit of information: pulling together resources and useful information you may find valuable as you transition to living in a new community.

Making the Move workshop will provide you with an opportunity to meet others new to the Rochester area, gather information about the community, and discover activities and opportunities. It's also a place where your questions and concerns are welcomed, and every effort will be made to provide you with answers and/or resources.

There are numerous collaborators who participate in the workshop. Click on the tabs and learn more about each collaborator and what they have to offer.
