COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 Histio Hub

The health and safety of you and your family - our Histio Community - is of utmost importance to us. We have been closely monitoring the developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as the professional advice being released by different health agencies across the globe, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States and the World Health Organization (WHO). We are also working closely with the medical leadership of the Histiocyte Society, the leading experts in histiocytic disorders globally, to help provide more histio-related information to you as soon as it is available. 

We have created this information hub to help you navigate your way through COVID-19. Information and links will be regularly added to this hub. The areas include:

  • Histio Community updates from our Executive Directory, Deanna Fournier
  • COVID-19 News from the CDC
  • Medical Articles related to histiocytic disorders from reputable sources
  • Resources on entertainment, families, children, mental health & wellness, education and more from around the internet

The news and information about COVID-19 can be unsettling and especially worrisome for older adults and those with compromised immune systems or lung involvement. Should you have any questions about your specific health concerns or if you begin to show symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, and shortness of breath, we encourage you to reach out to your medical team for evaluation.

As the situation continues to evolve and we receive more information, we will add it to this hub. If you have a resource you'd like to submit for consideration for inclusion, email it to info@histio.org.

Histio Open Stage Website Header

While many of us are home doing our part to avoid large gatherings and practicing social distancing, the need to stay connected with our friends, family and the Histio Community is at the forefront of our minds.

Let’s face it, the kids are bored, the dog is bored, and we could all use a little distraction.

For many in our Histio Community, important life events have been put on hold, even cancelled.

Concerts and recitals, and sporting events, too.
Science fairs, art shows, spelling bees and class trips.
Birthday parties, graduation, weddings, and fundraising events.

Whether you have a poem to recite, a craft to share, a song to sing, dancing, joke-telling - the possibilities are endless! Here is your “do-over”. Here’s your chance to share with us all. We would like to invite you to join us on the Histio Open Stage!
