Coping with COVID-19: Online Event

Thursday, November 12, 2020
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Learn practical strategies for coping with the stress caused by the changes and uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how you can also support others through the challenges.

Are you a parent whose children are learning remotely? Has your work situation changed dramatically as a result of the pandemic? Are you socially isolated as a result of physical distancing? Our lives have changed significantly over the past eight months, and we all could use a little relief.

Catherine Counard, MD, medical officer for the Office of Health Protection at the Illinois Department of Public Health and former director of the Village of Skokie Health Department, will provide a keynote presentation on COVID-19 in Illinois, after which other local organizations and residents will share resources and ways to deal with challenges caused by COVID-19.

Registration closes at 12 pm the day of the event. If you have questions about this event after registration has closed, please email the events team.

This event is presented by the Skokie Community Foundation in partnership with Chicago Lighthouse, Erie Family Health Centers, Mental Health America of the North Shore, North Suburban Healthcare Foundation, NorthShore University HealthSystem, Skokie Chamber of Commerce, Skokie Park District, Skokie Public Library, Skokie School District 69, Skokie Resilient Community Collaborative, Turning Point Behavioral Health Care, Village of Skokie, and Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center.
