As many of you were notified recently, Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Visiting Professor program with Jack Drescher, M.D.
Due to the state of emergency that Governor Whitmer has declared and a result of our rapidly changing coronavirus situation locally and globally, we decided it would be best for all if we did not gather together in groups.
We have also cancelled the MPI Open House scheduled for Saturday, March 21.
We hope that all individuals and their families stay safe and take the appropriate precautions of quarantine and isolation if sick and seek immediate medical care. It is clear that early intervention is extremely important for this illness.
