Is it safe to return to school, daycare, or to have playdates? What impact is the pandemic having on the mental health of children?
In this two-part episode, host Alex Gaudin talks with Dr. William Lennarz, System Chair of Pediatrics for Ochsner Health. Dr Lennarz has been leading the care for pediatric patients at Louisiana’s largest healthcare provider, and has been helping shape Ochsner’s response to COVID-19 in children. He’s also been a valuable resource for the community, as schools and organizations looking for guidance during the pandemic, consult with him on how to best return to operations. In this second part, they discuss the impact of the pandemic on children's development, and what a return to school may look like.
