Dear colleagues,

This event will be the first in our OAA COVID-19 Education Series.  For this first event there will not be continuing education credit. 

When:  4:30 - 5:30 PM Wednesday March 25, 2020  
Where:  By Zoom conference call via phone or computer

Join Zoom Meeting
We hope to have these events weekly for a few weeks and
the next few will be recorded webinars.
We aim to be able to provide CEUs for our members.
Next week's webinar:
The Role of Chinese Medicine in the Covid-19 Epidemic 
by Heiner Fruehauf, PhD, LAc
4:30 PM Thursday April 2, 2020  

All of these meetings will be limited to 100 attendees and will be first-come-first-served.  No registration will be required ahead of time.  If you can make it, please do, but the recordings for the rest of these events after tomorrow will be released afterwards.  Keep your eyes peeled for the Zoom invites for Heiner's and the following events.  As usual for these meetings, if you have a poor connection or are using a cell phone, please turn off your video so you don't decrease call quality for yourself and others.    
This initial event is designed as a meeting for us to help support one another in these trying times, whether the attendees are intending to stay open or not.  Our questions are designed for one another to help answer among ourselves and this meeting will not be recorded.  
  1. What are each of us hearing about and doing to help support ourselves and our families whether we are closing or not?  Are you getting SBA loans or unemployment, for example?    
  2. If we are staying open (or if we want to open again any time soon), what are we doing to keep our patients, our families, and ourselves safe?  For example, what can we do if we don't have any proper protective equipment (PPE)?  
Bring your questions that fit under these umbrellas, but by gosh bring some answers to share in the breakout groups too please!  The resources we gather between us will be released as part of the FAQ we'll be releasing and putting on our website this weekend at the latest.  This is intended to be a safe place to share resources and facts, so please respect your fellow practitioners and their opinions.

Thank you for your support,

Ross McCallum, LAc
