Event Details

Please join us on Friday, April 17th for our second At Home Edition of Brews and Views! This will be an online-only version of the ongoing series with no in-person attendance. A collaboration between the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering (IQ) and the Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences, the activity engages researchers and scholars to consider the implications of innovative biomedical research.

The session will begin at 5:00 PM via Zoom, and will be a virtual discussion with a group of experts about the impact living through a pandemic may have on our children.

Children appear to be at reduced risk of developing severe COVID-19 disease after infection with SARS-CoV-2 virus, yet they will be dramatically impacted by this pandemic. From changes in education that require at-home learning and how we view human contact, to job loss and economic strain, there are many ways this virus could potentially harm our children. It is our obligation to think through these issues to ensure healthy lives for our children during and after the pandemic. We consider several questions: How will social distancing impact children? How can we use online learning to facilitate education? How can we prepare for the next epidemic? How do we deal with the direct and indirect effects and the social sequelae of this pandemic? How do we effectively communicate information to our children without increasing or generating fear?

Participants are required to register for this webinar in advance. The webinar ID will be emailed to you after you register. We encourage you to submit your questions before the event (see links below). There will be opportunity to ask questions live, but we likely will not have time to cover all of them – the best way to get your questions answered is to submit them in advance! Please make sure to submit your questions via Slido by 10 AM on Friday, April 17th. Please note that it is optional to provide your name with question submissions. For those questions where names have been provided, the moderator will read whom the question came from. Otherwise it will be asked anonymously.
