As we all know, the pandemic has unfortunately reached new heights and has become widespread in every corner of the country. We have put together a panel of Deaf public health experts and epidemiologists who will be answering important questions about the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming vaccine, and how we can stay safe and healthy. 

This webinar, the second in our Youth Programs Webinar Series, will be more appropriate for middle and high school students. However, elementary students are welcome to join with the understanding that we strongly encourage their parents to sit with them.

Please feel free to share this information with your students and their families. We encourage people to pre-register for this Zoom-based webinar. Students will be welcome to ask questions for the panelists through the Q+A feature on Zoom. ASL to voice interpreters will be provided along with a live transcription. If additional special accommodations are needed, please email me at jesse.saunders@gallaudet.edu.
