Updated Class and Conference Cancellations
With clinical guidance and public health considerations, along with keeping your health and well-being at the forefront, we are continuing to take appropriate measures to protect our patients and each other.
OhioHealth EMS is handling class cancellations on a case by case basis to ensure we are complying with the Ohio governor’s order to not have a mass gathering of more than 50 people. If other events are cancelled, we will notify you by email for events where you are registered.
In the meantime, if you have questions about a specific class or education for EMS overall, please don’t hesitate to call us at (614) 566.9111. We want to support you in the best way possible.
The Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine is seeking rising Central Ohio junior and senior high schools students interested in the health sciences for their Summer Discovery Experience, June 2020 at the Dublin campus.
