Out of public health concerns surrounding COVID 19, a novel strain of coronavirus, we have decided to postpone our planned Health Professionals Training that was to take place Sunday, March 22nd in Vancouver, WA.
Our hope is to be able to reschedule this training, still to take place in Vancouver, in May 2020. We will keep everyone updated when we are more confident regarding a date for this training.
Thank you for your understanding. Please reach out to Lluvia Merello with any questions.
