Coronavirus: Resources for Members & Impact on Chapter Events
We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak in Georgia and the US and as a Chapter are making adjustments to ensure the safety of our members, partners, staff and community at large. We are committed to following all recommendations from the CDC and state and local public health departments and will be modifying and postponing events as necessary. The Jim Soapes Charity Golf Tournament benefiting the Pediatric Foundation of Georgia scheduled to be held on April 22, 2020 has been postponed. Please keep an eye on your email for updates. The Georgia Pediatric Practice Manager and Nurses meeting scheduled to be held on May 15, 2020 may also be postponed. A decision regarding this meeting will be made in early April. Please keep an eye on your email for updates.
The Chapter will be limiting in person meetings and providing a call-in or webinar option for all meetings. All Chapter staff are working remotely in the coming weeks, so we ask for your patience in returning calls. Email is the best way to reach the staff. Visit the About tab for a directory. Thank you!
