Patient Education

In light of the recommendations concerning social distancing and COVID-19, we are temporarily suspending all in-person patient education classes, including the Mindfulness Circle at Delta Oaks Clinic.

Homemade Face Masks

The CDC now recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. This does not replace stay at home or social distancing recommendations. Learn more about the use of cloth face coverings to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Download printer friendly  instructions for making different versions of cloth face coverings, and recommendations for how to wear and clean your cloth face mask.

We encourage our patients to take an active role in managing their health. Education helps patients feel confident about what they are experiencing and also helps them ask the right questions of their medical providers and care team.
