Area(s) of Interest: Professional Development & Education 

The California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS) and the California Medical Association (CMA), in partnership with the California Academy of Physician Assistants (CAPA) and Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California (OPSC), are hosting a monthly Virtual Grand Rounds series on the evolution of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and management of COVID-19 patients.

The second in our monthly Virtual Grand Rounds series – COVID-19 - The State of the Pandemic, Children, and Opening Schools – will be Tuesday, August 11, 2020, at 12 p.m. and will feature:

  • George W. Rutherford, M.D., A.M., Salvatore Pablo Lucia Professor of Epidemiology, Preventive Medicine, Pediatrics and History; Head of the Division of Infectious Disease and Global Epidemiology in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, University of California, San Francisco
  • Naomi Bardach, M.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Policy in the Department of Pediatrics and the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, University of California, San Francisco
  • Annabelle de St. Maurice, M.D., MPH, Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Co-Chief Infection Prevention Officer, UCLA Health

COVID-19 affects children differently. As schools attempt to reopen, the dynamics of COVID-19 in children is top of mind for clinicians, parents, educators and policymakers. Physicians are being asked to serve as experts in local decisions around reopening schools. The speakers will review the latest data on children and COVID-19, including symptoms, testing, patterns of disease and disease transmission, clinical presentation, and management of pediatric syndromes.

The 90-minute grand rounds webinars are free and open to all interested clinicians. Participants can receive 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Clinicians likely to encounter COVID-19 in their practice settings (e.g., front line physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants) are encouraged to join the monthly case-based presentations, which will include expert panel discussions and audience participation.

If you are unable to attend the live webinar, they will be available for on-demand playback at covidroundsca.org.  


This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the California Medical Association (CMA) and California Health and Human Services Agency.  CMA is accredited by ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The California Medical Association designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
