POSTPONED: CHW “Rise Up” Conference
March 26, 2020 : 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19)
Due to recently enacted policy of Rhode Island College to play its part in preventing community-spread Corona Virus, CHWARI has had to cancel the March 26 CHW conference. We intend to re-schedule it (hopefully with the same amazing speakers and trainers!) once our health officials and RIC advise us that it is again safe to gather in large groups. If you have already registered, we will hold onto your information and contact you when we select a new date. Until then, we appreciate the work you do as CHWs, supporting your community in this difficult time!
Be well and safe!
