Our first virtual conference is coming up in 60 minutes🥳 at 10:00 AM with Dr. Vera Etches as our Keynote Speaker. Here are some FAQs❓ answered!

1) How / where do I join?
The conference is held on Zoom integrated into the Heysummit platform. Join by (a) joining directly via the Heysummit invite from your email, and signing in on the Heysummit platform or (b) join by clicking on the Zoom link sent in your email by Social UOHS!

All conference delegates will have their camera turned OFF and will be muted. Any questions will be asked in the "Q&A" chat field, and if selected, can be asked out loud.

3) I am having trouble joining the conference, what do I do?

Please sign and share - Support this petition for Ministry of Health funding to keep the ORLEANS URGENT CARE CLINIC open for the Ottawa and Orleans community and avoid permanent closure. The Orleans Urgent Care Clinic remains OPEN for both in-person and TELEMEDICINE appointments. Please call (613) 841-5389 to schedule an appointment, or visit www.urgentcare.ca for more information. The trying times of the Covid-19 pandemic has unfortunately had a largely negative impact on the Orleans Urgent Care Clinic (OUCC), and the community-loved Ottawa clinic is now facing difficulty in remaining open for its dependent community, for the first time in 27 years. Every signature counts and helps. Link to the petition: http://chng.it/pb8jXGbT
