Ongoing

The 3rd Monday Lunch is on hiatus for now and will resume again at a future date. The cancellation of Research Assistance & More  on Wednesdays continues, but with the re-opening of the WTC we hope to have more information about this in the near future. 
 
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 2022. We plan to begin "in-person" meetings September 2022.  We look forward to getting together again at our in-person meetings. We plan to continue our online meetings in conjunction with the in-person so that our out of town members can continue to participate.
 
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 in September, but only if you are comfortable coming to an in-person meeting. In the meantime, keep up with SAGHS news on our Facebook page and this website.
