Exhibitors and Authors

Interact with visitors, demonstrate and sell your program, product or service, and increase your business presence by participating as an Exhibitor or Author!

Our shared mission

Our goal is to connect struggling families with resources to help overcome behavioral and health challenges they experience with their children. Our families have much to learn from you, an expert in your field! They may not realize the holistic options available to them as these solutions are often not discussed in conventional doctors’ offices or schools.

Our intention is to create a win/win situation!

  • Families discover hopeful options to help them thrive!
  • Holistic Wellness Pros connect with potential clients, spread your message and your business grows!

CHHF’s focus is to make sure families show up for you and help promote your services and products!
