IMPORTANT NOTICE: Second Session Fall courses will be on Zoom

The Osher at CMU board of directors at their last meeting, reluctantly made the decision to move the second session fall in-person courses from in-person to Zoom.  This was an extremely hard decision because we are all so eager to be done with this pandemic and get back to something resembling “normal”.  However, given the reports from both the CDC and the Allegheny Health Department and the demographics of our membership, the feeling is that it is better to wait just a little longer before attempting in-person classes again. 

The staff is in the process of setting the courses up on Zoom.  Understandably not all courses will work on Zoom and not all study leaders are willing to teach on Zoom.  If you are enrolled in such a course, you will be dropped from the course.  If it is your only course this fall term you will be given a full refund.  

If by chance you are not willing to attend classes on Zoom, please submit a drop form (found in the red box on our website) and the staff will drop you from the course. 

I am sorry and disappointed about this change but understand it really is, in the long run, for the benefit of the organization.  Thank you for your understanding.
