This webinar hosted by the Health Autonomy Clinic will focus on: helping you wade through resources, answer questions and also point towards building mutual aid networks throughout the region. The focus of the call will be this question:
What questions do you have about the Coronavirus and community support?
During the webinar, we will answer questions that people have submitted beforehand.
We’ll break the webinar into these parts:
Part 1: review of medical information
Part 2: what to do at home (i.e. immune support, staying connected, point to resources about mental health)
Part 3: community support networks that exist or are being built up, ie what can we do for the community
