Dear AAOA Members,

We are definitely dealing with unprecedented circumstances on so many levels.  As healthcare providers and AAOA members, we hope you are all safe and staying healthy.

We have been trying to review all of the updates and share key information with you, as well as sharing what some of us are doing to manage our practices through this difficult period.   We will continue to offer updates and post resources on the website.  We know you are inundated with information, so we are trying to balance email blasts with adding resources to the website for easy access.
