Need to Know
Hi everyone, this section will change often and speak to resources and updates between town hall meetings. Something to be aware of right now is that coming soon is a Telehealth workshop for all students and alumni in practice. In the homeroom meeting, you mentioned wanting to know how to expand your practice. If there are other questions you have, email Diane at so we can get it included in the workshop.
