Dear IFMSA members, 

Hope this email finds you in safety and great health.

I would love to share with you a great opportunity to join IFMSA at the #CopingwithCOVID Webinar led by UN Youth Envoy, UNICEF and the WHO. The webinar will mainly discuss the impacts of social distancing & isolation on young people’s education, lifestyle & work and adding up to the uncertainty & anxiety around #CoronaVirus.

It is led by Jayathma Wickramanayake, UN Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth, who will then be followed by Tammy Yu, our Liaison Officer for Human Rights and Peace and Ali Amirkafi, NMO President of IMSA-Iran. They will demonstrate what they are seeing in terms of the mental health impacts of COVID-19 on young people and their needs. The webinar will also feature experts from UNICEF and WHO who will shed light on how we can manage our emotions and take care of our mental health and well-being amidst this global pandemic.

Kindly find the link to directly watch the webinar here at 12 pm GMT/8 am EDT at: http://bit.ly/CwCOVID
