How to join a Scripps webinar, online class or virtual meeting

The virtual events offered through Scripps Health are a great way to learn about health topics and connect with others in the comfort of your home. You can interact with experts and your peers to get the answers and encouragement you need on your health journey. 


A virtual event is a presentation, workshop or meeting held via the internet in real-time. These are sometimes called webinars (short for “web seminar”) or online classes.


We use the Microsoft Teams platform to host these virtual events — with your safety and security in mind. Here’s what you need to know about using Microsoft Teams to join a session with us.

  • Download and install Microsoft Teams. This gives you the best meeting experience. See below for instructions.
  • If you prefer to join via the web, please use a computer with a modern browser (such as Edge or Chrome) to enhance the quality of the event. View compatible browsers.
  • Join from a quiet, comfortable space.
  • Use a headset, earbuds or headphones for the best sound quality.
  • Be sure the speakers on your computer or phone are working and the volume is turned up.
