California’s public schools have largely been shuttered for the past year, and pediatricians and others are reporting significant mental health distress in children. The next installment of our COVID-19 Virtual Grand Rounds will focus on school reopening and how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting pediatric mental health. The 90-minute webinar will be Tuesday, March 30, 2021, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

The webinar—A Year at Home - Update on School Reopening and Pediatric Mental Health in COVID-19—will feature Naomi Bardach, M.D., a UCSF pediatrician and researcher working with state leadership to help inform school reopening policy; Carol Glaser, M.D.,  Assistant Deputy Director,  Office of the State Public Health Laboratory,  who will discuss using antigen testing at schools, and other leaders who will help us understand pediatric mental health and also view the school reopening debate through an equity lens. 

This webinar is part of a monthly Virtual Grand Rounds series on the evolution of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and management of COVID-19 patients, hosted by 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).

These monthly case-based presentations include expert panel discussions and audience participation.

This webinar will be moderated by Kimberly Newell Green, M.D., immediate past president of the San Francisco Marin Medical Society (SFMMS) and associate clinical professor at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).
