COVID-19 And Young Children’s Health [Webinar]

In this webinar, we interview Dr. Dina Kulik, one of Canada’s leading child health media experts on the pandemic, reopening, and young children’s health. She shares her opinion and advice on the research around COVID-19, tips for PPE, and working on the front line with children during this time.

🎤 Our Special Guest

Dr. Dina Kulik – KidCrew

“I live in Toronto, Canada with my very supportive husband, four energetic and delicious sons (all under 7 years old), and two male dogs. I am the founder and director of Kidcrew and have experience as an Emergency Medicine Doctor. I’m a spin fanatic and adrenaline junky, needing constant stimulation to keep from getting bored (maybe that’s where the kids get it from?). I thrive in organized chaos. Sound familiar parents? Through this site, and my Kidcrew website, I’m hoping to get the conversation started on all things related to children’s health. From breastfeeding challenges to solid food introduction to managing night terrors – I’ve been through it all both personally and professionally. Raising healthy, adaptable children is a challenge. No one does perfectly and no one comes out unscathed. Survival is the goal most days!”

Connect with Dr. Dina on her blog.

🧪 Key Learning Outcomes

  • COVID is not just a respiratory virus – it can infect people with different symptoms and this is why we need to take ALL symptoms of illness seriously!
  • Kids under 2 years old should not be wearing masks because it’s a safety risk for children that young!
  • From a health prespective, screentime can be bad for really young children. It’s a balance between staying connected and get creative by making sessions interactive.

One comment

  • Very good information about COVID and it’s practical. I learned that covid isn’t just a fever or or flu like symptoms it could be different and anyone not feeling well should get checked out. I agree with less screen time and more physical activity which will help fight stuff off. Thank you for this.
