As the impact of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, JustUs Health is monitoring and responding to developments as they occur. Check out www.JustUsHealth.org/COVID-19 for details on our community response and updates on which services are available. We are currently planning to hold this course at the location, date, and time listed, but might offer the course virtually if social isolation continues into May. We will update participants as decisions are made.
