Description

Stay in your sweats, grab your favorite beverage, and connect with colleagues across Wisconsin during WSHA's Happy Hour Series.  Virtual networking is running from 6/16 through 8/25 and offers a meet-up for everybody.  Although sessions will be facilitated, these 1 hour gatherings offer an informal time for Q&A with colleagues, sharing resources, and connecting with others facing similar challenges and successes.

Prompting Questions:

Please take a look at the questions below before you register for the event. The facilitators for this Virtual Happy Hour will be discussing the following items: 

  1. What challenges are you facing related to Child and caregiver interaction via telehealth.
  2. For staff still working "in the field", what challenges are you facing related to PPE (children dont wear which increases likely hood of disease transmission, clinicians mouths are covered for modeling, etc...)
  3. Many families (or even agencies) have placed service on hold;  what does the "return to the clinic" look like?
