How To Help Children Be “Disaster-Resilient” and Why We Must

Wednesday, 8:30 am to 9:30 am Free

Data show that children with COVID-19 appear to have lower mortality rates, and generally milder symptoms, than do adults who contract the disease. However, the indirect effects of COVID-19 might well have devastating long-term impacts on children, especially in socially-, politically-, economically-, and, often, racially-marginalized communities.


Join EmbraceRace on Wednesday, April 22 for “How We Can Help Our Children to Be ‘Disaster-Resilient’ and Why We Must” for a conversation about how the unfolding crisis might be affecting children’s mental health, and what you can do to support their well-being. Time will be provided for questions and comments.

The event will feature Denese Shervington, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Tulane University School of Medicine and Institute for Women and Ethics Studies.
