St. Luke’s is resuming its Brown Bag Health Talks. But, for the time being they’ll be virtual, meaning you can access them from your kitchen table eating a lunch you didn’t have to bag.

The series will kick off fittingly enough with a Tuesday, Oct. 27, learn how to access health care through myChart, telemedicine and video visits.

Such virtual and electronic communication mediums have become a way of keeping patients and providers safer during the pandemic while improving access to care for those with transportation barriers, disabilities and scheduling challenges.

All Brown Bag presentations take place from 1 to 2 p.m. on their respective Tuesdays. The talks are free, but registration is required at www.stlukesonline.org/brownbag.

Questions? Call St. Luke’s Center for Community Health at 208-727-8733.
