Please chick here to Watch

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a dramatic loss of human life worldwide and presents an unprecedented challenge to public health as well as the world of work. The economic and social disruption caused by the pandemic is devastating. Despite best efforts to control, the pandemic has emerged in waves and lockdowns have happened repeatedly to prevent loss of lives and preserve the ability of the health system to deal with ill-stricken human beings. 

The Covid19 however is going to leave a lot of longer-lasting effects as well as deeper impacts which many of us aren’t able to feel. National Forum for Health and Wellbeing has organised a Public Engagement and Educational seminar in the series to bring a variety of speakers to share their experience or expertise with us. Please encourage all your friends and colleagues to join us on 22nd May at 2 pm.
