Winter Speaker Series 2019-2020
Due to extreme transmissibility of the Covid-19 virus and recommendations from the State and federal CDC’s regarding social distancing, FOMB is regretfully canceling our scheduled April and May Speaker Presentations. We hope to have both speakers back next season assuming the current crisis has passed. Meanwhile, we hope everyone stays safe and works to stay healthy, keeping your immune systems strong. Along with plenty of outdoor exercise, here are some tips from the Environmental Health Trust.

FOMB is seeking an Executive Director.
