COVID-19 Update: LSPA Holding Virtual Events

Due to the fast changing COVID-19 situation and Governor Baker's State of Emergency declaration,  the LSPA is postponing or holding all events virtually or by conference call until further notice. This includes the March 19 member meeting, committee meetings, and upcoming courses.
We appreciate your patience as we take some time to manage the logistics of offering meetings and courses virtually. We will be in communication when we have specifics to share regarding rescheduling. This information will also be posted on the LSPA website blog, courses page, and meetings & events page, as appropriate.
As noted in our earlier email, the LSPA will provide refunds to any event for which you have registered in which you do not participate.
The LSPA Board and staff are continuing to assess the situation and following these resources:
Massachusetts Department of Public Health: 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
World Health Organization:

We will be in touch.
Be well.
Michele Paul, LSP
LSPA President
