Due to recent changes in Maine Medical Center’s visitor guidelines we will be offering this class as an online interactive class instead of in person.

The scheduled instructor will be leading it and be available for questions. A few days before the class is scheduled to take place you will receive an email with instructions on how to participate online or by phone.

We recognize the inconvenience of this change and so will be issuing a full refund of your registration cost. We apologize and hope to be able to resume classes on our campus soon.

Thanks for your understanding as we seek to find new ways to provide you information and support.
