In 2019, the theme for NFM was Walden Well-being. In addition to the traditional Andragogy and Innovative Teaching Practices sessions, Well-being sessions were led by faculty and staff. Many of these sessions were interactive and some even include physical exercises. Walden faculty and staff also donated over 100 books and a box of school supplies to Fort Foote Elementary School.
