    I wish to register for the February session about Determinants of Health.

    Sorry about the confusion about the November 15 meeting. Because of the change-over in my calendar system, I got completely confused over the November date.

  4. Alyssa Dinberg Says:

    Hi Mark, We are thrilled you plan to join us for Social Determinants of Health in February. Registration is not up yet for this event but we will put on an internal list. Thanks for supporting American Public Square!

    the last time I went to an event at pierson I was given a ticket for parking.
    Where are we supposed to park? Which lot is free?
    It doesn’t say anywhere which lot to part in.
    I think that was the problem last time …

  6. American Public Square Says:

    We are sorry to hear that and apologize for the late response! We were just alerted of your website comment. For events at Pierson Auditorium, we do reserve the 5th and 6th levels of the Cherry Street parking garage for our Dinner at the Square attendees.
