2021-2022 Membership Drive!

It's time to renew your membership! Whether you're a new member or a returning "old-timer," SAGHS relies on your membership dues to continue providing our many benefits to members. To reward our members, we're holding a Membership Drive Drawing for those who are members on July 1. Winners will be announced at our virtual meeting on July 6. We're giving away three prizes, with a switch. Winners of the prizes get to select one of several options. For the list of prize options and more information, see the Membership Drive flyer.


The 3rd Monday Lunch is on hiatus for the summer and will resume again in September. The cancellation of Research Assistance & More  on Wednesdays continues, but with the re-opening of the WTC we hope to start up again very soon. By September, the SAGHS Board of Directors will re-evaluate meeting in person based on the status of the pandemic and the availability of our usual meeting space. We will keep you posted!
To help us all stay connected, while remaining safe at home, SAGHS will host an online presentation the first Tuesday of each month through August 2021! Hopefully we can all get together again, in person, for a celebratory meeting. Check back here, or more information.
We encourage all of our members and friends to be careful and follow the guidelines provided by our healthcare professionals. We care about you, and hope to see you in the future, when we are able to meet again in person. In the meantime, keep up with SAGHS news on our Facebook page and this website.
