  5. 5. HOW DO WE SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT AMOENA Instructors do an introduction at each class where they inform their class of new items (sponsors) and information. i.e. Amoena products. They also have an education table set up at each class with information on it, i.e. information about Amoena. Every two to three months they have an educational day instead of class where they bring in speakers. One of those days is always a ‘boutique’, ‘Nordstrom’s’, if possible, to speak about prosthetics and proper bra wearing, i.e. Amoena. Healthy-Steps Newsletters and special announcements Many of our instructors work at the hospitals and have the opportunity to get Amoena products sold directly at their hospitals, i.e. Colorado, Lutheran Medical Center and Baton Rouge General.
