This 3-hour webinar will highlight research to better understand the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and health equity issues affecting children, adolescents, and their families in Canada and the United States. The discussion will include research on the social determinants of health and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and adolescents in diverse underserved communities.

Canadian and U.S. speakers will jointly present on research strengths, approaches, meaningful partnerships, and interventions to promote health equity. Panelists will share successes and lessons learned from their own work and communities as well as identify barriers to multidisciplinary research with and about children, adolescents, and families within a pandemic context, particularly in diverse underserved communities.
