As the coronavirus has continued to spread across the world and across our country, nearly every school community in the nation here has felt its impact. At Kaiser Permanente Thriving Schools, we understand that those who work in schools and the families who rely on schools for daily learning, support, and sustenance are feeling stressed and overwhelmed. We want you to know that we are here to support you. That’s why we’ve joined with several national school health organizations to develop this special webinar series focused on caring for the education community during COVID-19.

Join us to learn about ways to navigate these new and uncertain times together. These webinars are hosted by national experts from Kaiser Permanente and partner organizations. Each webinar will offer insights and ideas for educators, family caregivers, and school staff to care for themselves and others during this time.
