From RCPA member Gateway Health:

Dear Community Partner,

At Gateway Health, we strive to care for the whole person in all communities where the need is greatest. As part of our journey to deliver whole person care, we are now hosting a series of virtual panel discussions for our members and community partners. Given the ongoing challenges associated with hosting in-person and on-site events, we are using these virtual sessions to help us reconnect with the communities we serve.

We hope that you will consider joining us for our first event which will focus on “The Effect of COVID-19 on Vulnerable Communities.”

Date: Thursday, July 30
Time: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
