FSTNW postpones upcoming Salon workshops

In the interest of safety in our current health care environment, FSTNW is postponing our upcoming Salon workshops on March 27, May 8, and June 12. We are very interested in the subject and speakers we had scheduled. We hope to reschedule these workshops when it is safe to do so.

The FSTNW Board will continue to looks for ways to provide educational activities. We’re a member-driven professional association. As we look for ways to assist you, please consider joining our efforts as a volunteer. In times like these, working together is our greatest strength.
