Even if they avoid the worst direct effects of the virus, children may be particularly sensitive to the longer-term stressors of the COVID-19 pandemic caused by the economic downturn and social distancing policies. Join CIFAR Fellows Meghan Azad (University of Manitoba), Michael Kobor (University of British Columbia), and Candice Odgers (University of California, Irvine), three members of a project team supported by the Manulife CIFAR Population Health & Well-being Grant Program, as they investigated how the pandemic will affect children’s brains, immune systems, and ability to thrive.
