Lessons Learned: COVID-19’s Impact on Students
With a special focus on how the pandemic has impacted learning for students and the mental and physical effects of distance learning, we will hear from Dr. Steven Adelsheim, Clinical Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and Dr. Mary Ann Dewan, the Santa Clara County Superintendent of Schools. They will share insights on what schools should consider when supporting students’ mental and physical wellbeing as most students return to the physical campus in the fall and how education might adapt post COVID-19 to dramatic educational shifts.
The Silicon Valley Leadership Group is especially excited about this roundtable because it is a combination of our Health and Education Committees taking place during our COVID-19 and Education Roundtable series.
We hope to see you there!
