We plan to reschedule this event in the future. Please check-in with our events page or sign-up for our email newsletter for updates.

These precautions have been designed with input from the University’s COVID-19 response team, which includes leaders from across the university, including, importantly, infectious disease experts at the School of Medicine. Visit the WashU Information page to learn more.
