COVID-19 and Kids: A Live AMA
COVID-19 and Kids: A Live AMA

COVID-19 has challenged parents to manage their children’s health in a setting of unprecedented risk. More than 12.7 million children in the U.S. alone have tested positive for COVID-19 since the pandemic began, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. At 6:00 p.m. on June 8, KPCC Senior Health Reporter Jackie Fortiér (she/her) will take live viewer questions and lead a discussion with two experts on COVID-19 in children and teenagers.

Delving into their clinical experiences, knowledge and research expertise, our guests will discuss the effect of COVID-19 on children’s physical and mental health, the development of the vaccine for children under five years old, and research on long COVID in children. Join us online for this discussion and get live answers to your questions. Reserve your free spot.


  • Dr. Olga Guijon (she/her), Division Chief Primary Care, Children's Hospital Orange County
  • Andrew Noymer, associate professor of population health and disease prevention, University of California, Irvine
