Safe Healthy Strong Postponed

After much consideration, in consultation with our public health partners, and based on the advice of our medical director, we have decided to postpone next week’s Safe Healthy Strong Conference out of an abundance of caution due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We hope to reschedule the conference for later this year and will keep you posted with that information. If you have any questions or concerns about the postponement of the conference, please contact me at [email protected] or 608-345-7277.
