Event Date: Thursday, October 7, 2021    |    Event Time: 7:00 to 9:00PM

No matter from where we hail, the pandemic has affected us and leaves us with many questions as we emerge from this last year of continued restrictions and new variants. Our speakers will talk with us about vaccines and possible boosters, how those with long-haul COVID are coping, the impact on our First Nations communities, and how to support our mental health as we continue through the many twists and turns of our recovery and the rebuilding of our lives out of this pandemic.

Featured Speakers:

Danuta Skowronski, MD, FRCPC, BC Centre for Disease Control
Jesse Grenier, MD, FRCPC Internal Medicine, Post-COVID-19 Recovery Clinic, Providence Health Care
Shannon MacDonald, BA, MD, Acting Chief Medical Officer, First Nations Health Authority
Matthew Chow, MD, FRCPC, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, President of Doctors of BC

The Lafayette String Quartet will perform twice, at the opening and closing of the evening.
