Milton Hershey School Hosts Twitter Chat About Stress During the Pandemic

Children respond to stress in different ways. During an ongoing pandemic like COVID-19, a child’s caregiver—whether it’s a parent, teacher, or trusted adult—can all contribute to the child’s health and well-being.

Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2020 from noon to 1 p.m. EST to learn ways in which we can all help children navigate stress during an ongoing pandemic. We have partnered with Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center(@PennStHershey), a multi-hospital health system serving patients and communities across central Pennsylvania and two of their experts in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Dr. Taran Jolly (@taransi45868439) and Dr. Meenal Pathak (@MPathak04688427).

Use #MHSChat to join the conversation.
