COVID-19’s Impact on Health and Well-Being

About this resource

Now more than ever, loneliness is a growing public health concern as communities require social distancing and self-isolation to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Dr Vivek Murthy, the 19th Surgeon General of the United States and Dr Cathy Hall, Head of School at Noble and Greenough School in Dedham, Massachusetts, explored the dangers of loneliness and the lasting impact it can have on our health and our students.

By listening to this webinar, you will:
– hear how loneliness impacts not only our health but also how it affects children’s experiences at home and at school;
– discover the complex forces that contribute to loneliness, especially for young people;
– discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has compounded this issue; and
– consider these elements as you create your plan to reopen your campus and bring students, faculty, and staff back together.
