Important Notice: Event Postponed
To our honored donors and supporters:Western University of Health Sciences is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak making its way across the world. This situation remains fluid as new information and updates come in by the hour. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday, March 4 declared a state of emergency due to the outbreak. In the interests of public health and safety, WesternU is postponing the East West Luncheon as a precautionary measure to safeguard everyone involved, including our treasured donors and supporters. This is one of several extraordinary steps the University is taking in response to this health threat. WesternU is postponing or canceling multiple longstanding events or ceremonies as determined by senior management and the University Coronavirus Core Response Team. WesternU also is suspending all international travel and non-essential domestic travel for faculty. We are grateful for your continued support and we look forward to recognizing your contribution to the education of our future health professionals in the near future. Thank you for your understanding, and feel free to contact us if you have questions.
