Lafayette Health Awareness Series


Donations for this year’s forum will go towards a Lafayette Music and Health Legacy Fund supporting interdisciplinary research, teaching and community outreach in the area of music and health.

2021 Lafayette Health Awareness Series presents:

Navigating through COVID-19 – Using our collective wisdom to guide us.

No matter from where we hail, the pandemic has affected us and leaves us with many questions as we emerge from this last year of continued restrictions and new variants. Our speakers will talk with us about vaccines and possible boosters, how those with long-haul COVID are coping, the impact on our First Nations communities, and how to support our mental health as we continue through the many twists and turns of our recovery and the rebuilding of our lives out of this pandemic.
