The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic shows no sign of abating any time soon, but what impact will the disease have on Americans and the U.S. healthcare industry in the long-term?
In a free webinar at 7:30 p.m. EST on Nov. 12, the MJH Life Sciences COVID-19 Coalition will seek to illuminate the existing data on the disease’s clinical course and potential long-term health consequences, as well as the pandemic’s effect on the mental health of children and young adults as they begin to navigate a virtual lifestyle.

The coalition sprang from MJH’s mission to improve quality of life through healthcare communications, education, and research, the MJH Life Sciences COVID-19 Coalition was formed to help keep healthcare professionals up-to-date and informed on the science and latest learnings on COVID-19.
Leveraging relationships with top thought leaders across a variety of key specialties, the Coalition generates the most accurate, up-to-the-minute information on the pandemic’s ever-evolving impact on healthcare professionals and the patients they treat.
