Addressing Loneliness in Our Youth During COVID-19 presented by Cigna

Episode 9 Episode Image

Episode 9: Airdate October 14, 2020

Speakers: Dr. Stuart Lustig | Cigna

Moderator: Sophie Phillips & Jess Trudeau | TexProtects

Synopsis: Most people feel lonely at some point in their lives, but two landmark Cigna studies found that more than half of respondents reported some degree of loneliness, with young people being the loneliest among all the generations studied. What role does social media play in this epidemic? What happens when the loneliness epidemic converges with the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping many students at home away from their friends at school and tethered to their screens for e-learning? In this webinar, we discussed the challenges of e-learning for parents, kids, and teachers--and how to best support everyone involved.
