Register Now for Annual Welcome Back to the Island Webinar Set for November 1
The Grande Rounds health lecture series sponsored by the Boca Grande Health Clinic and the Boca Grande Health Clinic Foundation will kick off the season on November 1. “Welcome Back to the Island” will be the main theme of the first virtual event, which will feature Clinic Medical Director Raymond A. James, D.O., and Clinic CEO Mark Driscoll, who will cover what to expect as our seasonal residents consider their return to an Island that’s more than a bit different than past years.
Joining the webinar will be Boca Beacon’s Cheryl Schum, who will provide imagery and commentary on Hurricane Ian’s impact and recovery efforts.
Grande Rounds events are free of charge as part of the Clinic’s and Foundation’s mission to educate the community. Please join us for these informative sessions, which are tentatively planned for January and February 2023. Event information, including program recordings, are available at Events.
