OBPOA Members Meeting: 6 p.m. on May 13, 2021
Featuring Guest Speaker Dr. Peter Hotez, MD
We are thrilled to announce that that noted virologist Peter Hotez, MD, PhD, FATMH, FAAP, has agreed to be our guest speaker at the association’s Spring Members Meeting at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, May 13th. Dr. Hotez was kind enough, despite his extremely busy schedule, to accept our invitation to speak at the meeting, which traditionally features a speaker on a topic of interest to neighbors. Because he was only available on May 13th at 6 p.m. the meeting date has changed. Dr. Hotez will present a topic related to the COVID19 pandemic, followed by a Q&A session. We will share the title of his presentation as soon as we receive it.
Please note this meeting has been moved and was originally scheduled for April 20, so please update your calendars. The membership meeting will be held via Zoom.
