In Spring 2021, we produced the first season of Safe, Strong & Healthy Schools. The conversations featured presentations from physician leaders in pediatrics, infectious disease, mental health, and other relevant fields to addressing questions and concerns about the COVID-19 Pandemic and its impact on children, especially as it pertained to their participation in in-person school and activities.
