"Simple yet impactful content. Duration was great and it allowed enough time for Q&A. Loved the integration of kid presenters."
"Dr. Santella does a great job bringing kids into the conversation. He maintains a delicate balance of speaking to kids at their level without patronizing them. There's enough interaction to keep kids engaged and interested without over burdening them."
"At a time when parents are trying to share and provide real and quality information without fear to our children about this global pandemic, I think the webinar provided the science and reality of what COVID-19 is and how children can both protect themselves and others."
"Absolutely outstanding! Dr. Santella was fabulously articulate, knowledgeable, factual, and delivered the information effectively!"
