On August 21st, 2017 the nation will stop to look at the sky, when the first total solar eclipse to cross the united states in almost 100 years turns the world dark. CFM patients are lucky enough to reside in the path of totality, an area where the sun will be completely blocked by the moon. To celebrate this rare event and ensure patient and staff safety, CFM will be closed on Monday, August 21st. Have fun and be safe!
