August 19, 2020
Contagion Editorial Team

Join us tomorrow for an informative discussion on CDC guidance and insights from medical experts on navigating a way back to in-school learning.

August traditionally kicks off back-to-school time in the United States, but this year presents challenges as the number of new, confirmed coronavirus cases increases each day in many parts of the country. Individual school districts and colleges debate the merits of in-school learning and weighing it with safety concerns.

School administrators, nurses and teachers are trying to develop plans to bring students back for in-school learning and try to keep everyone safe.

As everyone is still trying to navigate uncharted waters, MJH Life Sciences™ has created a webinar "Debating the Road Back to School," scheduled for this Thursday, August 20, at 6PM EDT.

This 1-hour live event with our panel of experts will discuss current US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, outline what a safe return-to-school plan looks like, talk pros and cons of adding COVID-19 to the list of state-mandated immunizations for children once a vaccine is available, and share advice on how to counsel parents through this confusing time.

This webinar will feature the top minds in the field including:

  • Moderator: Kathleen Kenny, PharmD
  • Panelist: Donna Hallas, PhD, PPCNP-BC, CPNP, PMHS, FAANP, FAAN
  • Panelist: Paul Lipkin, MD

Kenny is president and CEO of Med Ink Exec, LLC. With over 20 years of clinical training and experience, Kenny believes that well-educated patients and knowledgeable practitioners both contribute to improved health outcomes.
