We share your collective grief at what has transpired to bring us to this moment. Racism leaves a toxic mark on all of us, a growing body of research tells us that it harms children’s health even before they are born. We have been deeply saddened by the events of the past week and we want you to know that PWG stands in solidarity with the black community against racism and injustice.
We will be closing early tomorrow, June 2, 2020 at 3:30p. After we close tomorrow there will be a PWG physician on-call for urgent questions. If you experience a medical emergency please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. We anticipate regular hours resuming on Wednesday June 3, 2020. We will post updates in case of any changes.
