As COVID-19 continues to spread, please know that we are taking every precaution to keep our patients, caregivers and community safe. We are working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as state and local health authorities to ensure we limit the spread of the virus.

With this in mind, we have decided to postpone the Valiant Women Luncheon scheduled for April 6, 2020, to a later date. While we value our time together, the health and safety of our community and each of you is our top priority. 

We are looking at options for rescheduling the event and will publish a new date when it is determined.
