CLA (All Are Welcome): Let’s Celebrate the Beginning of Summer!
This month our group will meet for brunch on Thursday, June 20th at 10:30 am. Join us to for a relaxing time to enjoy each other’s company and good food while we welcome summer and review the year. If it’s nice we might be able to meet outside. Please sign up at the front desk for this event by June 14th. If you are willing to help with set-up, clean up or by preparing something to eat, you can indicate that when you sign up for the brunch.

This study is supported by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health, and has been approved by the Yale University Institutional Review Board.
