With the COVID-19 pandemic quickly spreading through the country, information and recommendations are changing daily. While up-to-date information, resources, and recommendations are available on the Chapter’s COVID-19 Provider Resources page, the Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics created a weekly webinar forum series to address some of the most frequently asked questions we received. These weekly forums provided Florida’s pediatric health care providers an opportunity to have their questions related to COVID-19 answered live by FCAAP experts and guest speakers. Replays of all sessions in the COVID-19 Florida Pediatric Health Care Provider Forum series can be found below.
