New research-backed tools ready to support parents in navigating COVID-19 pandemic

Featured in the University of Alberta Folio, Dr. Shannon Scott and Dr. Lisa Hartling talk about developing resources to help parents with questions about their children and COVID-19. 


Researchers at the University of Alberta have developed a series of new information tools to help parents with questions about their children and COVID-19.


The three videos and three interactive infographics cover caring for a child with COVID-19, vaccinating children against the virus and re-socializing children as they return to more activities. 

You can view these resources developed by Dr. Shannon Scott and Dr. Lisa Hartling on our COVID-19 resource page.
