WEBINAR REGISTRATION

I am offering free COVID-19 youth webinars for kids (grades K-6) and teens (grades 7-12). While the primary audience are children and youth, I welcome parents/guardians, teachers, counselors, school administrators, and anyone who is interested in getting information on the novel coronavirus or COVID-19. The webinar will use medically accurate and age appropriate content and will focus on the science and public health along with frequently asked questions about how the coronavirus impacts things that matter to youth and adolescents. Each session includes a live Q&A. Webinar log in details will be emailed in advance of the webinar.

"Simple yet impactful content. Duration was great and it allowed enough time for Q&A. Loved the integration of kid presenters."

"Dr. Santella does a great job bringing kids into the conversation. He maintains a delicate balance of speaking to kids at their level without patronizing them. There's enough interaction to keep kids engaged and interested without over burdening them."

"At a time when parents are trying to share and provide real and quality information without fear to our children about this global pandemic, I think the webinar provided the science and reality of what COVID-19 is and how children can both protect themselves and others."

"Absolutely outstanding! Dr. Santella was fabulously articulate, knowledgeable, factual, and delivered the information effectively!"
