Each month, the Outreach Department at Partners In Care offers a free webinar open to anyone in the community interested in the topic being presented. The webinars are held on the third Friday of the month at noon PST, and hosted virtually on zoom. Partners In Care plans to be able to host Community Education discussions in-person, on-site at our main office in Bend starting in April 2023, but will still host them virtually as well for those community members who may not have the ability to physically join.

Upcoming webinars include:

  • March 17, 12:00 pm PST – Dementia Caregiving and Telehealth: the Tele-STELLA project
  • April 21, 12:00 pm PST – The Importance of Volunteers
