TORONTO, Jan. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — On Wednesday, January 19, video conferencing solution and virtual live event producer, Banty Inc., presented Let Kids Be Kids, an online educational gathering focused on COVID-19’s impact on children.
Let Kids Be Kids featured a detailed and informative presentation from Dr. Martha Fulford (Infectious Diseases Physician and Associate Professor at McMaster University; Chief of Medicine for the McMaster University Medical Centre – Hamilton Health Sciences), as well as compelling commentary from Dr. Khrista Boylan (Pediatric Psychiatrist and Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University), as well as moderators Dr. Richard Tytus (Family Doctor; Associate Clinical Professor, Family Medicine at McMaster University) and Dr. Dennis DiValentino (Family Doctor; Assistant Clinical Professor, Family Medicine at McMaster University).
The event touched on several important issues including the mental and emotional toll COVID-19 restrictions have had on children; whether or not schools should continually remain open during the pandemic; and vaccinations.
Separate sessions were held for healthcare professionals and the general public alike. These sessions attracted an international audience of 500+, more than half of which came from the healthcare industry. Together they actively took part in the conversation, thanks to the interactive Q&A discussions moderated by Banty.
