Program image

By the summer of 2020, COVID-19 was a fast-growing virus in the United States. While older adults and those with underlying health conditions may be at a greater risk, adolescents must be informed on how to slow the spread of the pandemic. In this age-appropriate program, new scientific research and interactive activities will be used to teach youth the critical importance of daily hygienic practices. Participants will learn how to locate credible information regarding COVID-19 and strategies to reduce pandemic induced stress and anxiety.
