Trying to register for a Saturday workout class but am not allowed. I donated under my email below. My son Liam is in the UQ chapter. I am a Dartmouth undergrad, did my medicine residency at Tufts St E’s in Boston and Cardiology Fellowship at Harvard, Brigham and Women’s, and was on the faculty at Dartmouth Hitrchcock for a while. If I am eligible, can you email me what to do?
