ARCS NCC: UNIVERSITY UPDATE & NEWS - COVID 19

Posted on Saturday, April 4, 2020

The leadership of the ARCS Northern California chapter has been communicating with each of our six university partners, as well as directly to our 2019-20 ARCS Scholar cohort. We stand in support of all of them in this challenging and uncertain time.

Some have asked about what is happening at the universities and what information is being made available by our university partners about COVID-19. Below are a couple of links for each of our partner schools, as a representation of what they are making generally available. It is just a sample, so for more information and current news, please continue to search online.

We also have additional information from Anne Thorson, ARCS member and Clinical Professor of Medicine, Cardiology Associate Director, UCSF Center for Prevention of Heart and Vascular Disease.

Anne suggests these two additional sources for current information on COVID-19, along with our NCC university partner sites noted above. We are exploring potential dates for a virtual educational salon with Anne in the coming weeks, as we seek to stay abreast of pertinent information and recommendations from the medical community.
