WATCH: Community Conversation on how the pandemic affects our kids

While the health risks of COVID to children are lower than those of older adults, the reduced social interaction, missed time in school and other consequences of the pandemic has affected children of all ages in ways we are just now beginning to understand.

The latest Community Conversation discusses COVID’s effects on the development of children with experts from around the region.

The Dayton Daily News hosted Community Conversation can be watched on the Dayton Daily News Facebook page.
