Coping with the new rules for Covid – Will you be coming to Seder?

April 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Coping with the new rules for Covid – Will you be coming to Seder?

This webinar is sponsored by the Luke Sklar Mental Health Initiative working committee members

April 6, 7:30 pm

 

As official government restrictions lift, many of us still have many questions and concerns. How do I navigate the changing landscape? How can I be an advocate for my own health? How can I safely protect my unvaccinated children or aging/immune compromised parents? If the last 2 years have taught us anything, it’s that the answers to these questions, and a host of others, are not black and white, and they evoke different feelings in different people.

Please join us for this “fireside chat/panel discussion” Zoom webinar with one of Toronto’s leaders in infectious disease research, as well as two mental health experts, who will address our concerns, give us the facts on the ground, and help ease whatever anxieties we may have.

Our panel:

Dr. Andrew Morris is a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto and the Medical Director of the Sinai Health System-University Health Network Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. He is also Chair of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee for the Society for Hospital Epidemiology of America. He obtained his medical degree at the University of Toronto, specializing in Infectious Diseases. He then completed a Master of Science degree in Epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health while completing a Canadian Infectious Diseases Society research fellowship. Dr. Morris has worked closely with regional, provincial and federal governments and interprovincial organizations to help develop and coordinate antimicrobial stewardship efforts. He is widely sought as a speaker and consultant and is the author of over 100 peer-reviewed publications, as well as the weekly community email series: “Emails from your friendly neighbourhood infectious diseases specialist.”

Dr. Alan Bardikoff has been a registered psychologist since 1989. He is currently in private practice, but before that, worked in both hospitals and community agencies treating anxiety, depression and other emotional and behavioural disorders in both adolescents and adults. He was the Clinical Manager of the Jerome D. Diamond Adolescent Centre and has consulted to numerous schools, both public and private, and supervised the mental health team at a private school serving children with learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder. He consults at various treatment facilities in Toronto including Children’s Aid Societies and adolescent treatment centres. Alan and his family are long-time members of Holy Blossom Temple.

Zoe Levitt is a Masters-level social worker who has spent her 30-year career helping older people and their families, both in hospitals and in their own homes. She has a private practice wherein she provides counselling to clients who may be struggling with loss, depression, illness, memory challenges and isolation. Zoe also assesses how they are managing at home and will make recommendations in order to enhance their social, emotional, medical and physical well-being. As well, she helps her clients navigate the healthcare system and access community services.
