COVID Family Health Forum

Wednesday, April 8 2020

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I want to take this opportunity to let you know that this Saturday, April 11, 2020 First District PTA and I are partnering with four family therapists for a virtual Family Health Forum.  This forum will provide strategies and recommendations for families abiding by social distancing to better cope with the effects of COVID.

The way in which this will work is, first please email me a question that you would like answered during the forum to this email:

And second, call the number below on Saturday morning to join the Forum.

We will try to answer as many questions as possible.  There is only so much capacity that the phone lines can hold.  If you cannot get through to listen or need closed captioning services, the virtual forum will also be streaming on my website which you can find here.
