    The Indiana Healthy Weight Initiative understands that getting to Indianapolis can be difficult for those of you not living or working close buy. We also understand that registration fees can make events prohibitive for some organizations and individuals. For this reason, we are offering IHWI Annual Meeting Stipends for individuals who must travel long distances to attend our meeting or who need financial support to offset the cost of registration.
