Dear U of A Community,

On behalf of the entire Pat Walker Health Center, we want to praise your efforts over the past several weeks adjusting to this temporary way of life. We hope you are discovering new ways to learn, collaborate and engage with your peers and colleagues, as well as access impactful university programs and resources.

As we continue to practice responsible social distancing measures, we must remember to take care of ourselves and each other. Our aggressive efforts — as difficult as they may be — must not come at the expense of our health and well-being.

Things feel different in the world right now, but what hasn’t changed is that we are a community.
