Note that H-STAT has temporarily suspended all service and in-person programming in an effort to help flatten the curve. We urge you to also do your part by practicing social distancing and staying home unless you absolutely need to be somewhere. Please check back here for updates regarding resumption of our usual programming. We wish everyone a safe, healthy, and informed time of social distancing.
