COVID-19 VIRTUAL PANEL DISCUSSION

As we reflect on the first six months of COVID-19, we continue to think about what our lives will look like for the remainder of 2020 and beyond.  What will the impacts be of our kids going back to school? When will it be safe to return to the workplace in a full-time capacity? How can we better prepare for a possible second wave of this pandemic?  As these questions circulate in our minds, we realize there are still so many unknowns.

One thing we know for sure: Trillium Health Partners has cared for one of the highest volumes of COVID-19 patients in the province and remains on the front lines of care in the fight against this pandemic. As part of our continued service to the community, we invite you to join us for a live virtual panel discussion with special guest speakers who are leading experts on COVID-19 and can help us answer these foremost questions, and more.
