Conflicting stories about the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic have left many adults anxious, confused and upset.  What about the children?  Many will take cues from their adult caretakers while many others are left wondering about the current conditions and future.  Proms, graduations and other rites of passage have been suspended with no real plan to address the impact on the mental well-being of our nation's young.  This week's guest, Warren Y. K. Ng, M.D., M.P.H., President-Elect: American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry will join us for a serious talk about what's happening with the children in our care. Dr. Ng is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University; Medical Director for Outpatient Behavioral Health at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC); and Director of Clinical Services, Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at CUIMC. Dr. Ng oversees the spectrum of clinical programs in child, adolescent, and adult outpatient behavioral health at NewYork-Presbyterian’s Ambulatory Care Network and all psychiatric services at the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York.   Join us at 2pm!
