In light of the concern of the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the restrictions of our event venue, we are pivoting this event to a virtual platform. Supporting the health and wellness of our community is a top priority, and we are following current Case Western Reserve University protocols, as well as recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, with particular emphasis on limiting social contact with others. We hope that by doing our part, we can help to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
