The Johns Hopkins Department of Pediatrics Virtual Grand Rounds
Monday, May 11, 2020 from 12:00-1:00pm EDT
The webinar “COVID-19 and Schools: The public health case for closing schools and where we go from here?” is sponsored by the Rales Center and the Consortium for School-Based Health Solutions. Speakers include Tina L. Cheng, MD, MPH, Eric Toner, MD, and Katherine A. Connor, MD, MPH.
School closures due to coronavirus have affected at least 55.1 million students in the United States. More than 30 states have closed schools for the rest of the academic year. Join Johns Hopkins clinicians, public health preparedness experts, and school health experts as they discuss the public health rationale for closing schools, what policymakers and school leaders are grappling with as they decide how to re-open, and hear about innovative ways that school health programs can help fill in health gaps for kids during school closures.
