Pitch Partners: Kids and COVID - A Question About Masking
Join the Center for Community Health Partnership & Research for a special mini-version of our exciting Pitch Partners event!  

Dr. Ken Haller and several of his colleagues have noticed an “admittedly anecdotal yet frequent and consistent” trend related to kids and masking: little ones seem really excited about these pandemic-friendly fashion accessories! Yet guidance related to mask wearing tends focuses on helping parents wrestle masks onto their children.

So, why does medical information focus so heavily on a battle of wills? Is Dr. Haller’s experience unique in St. Louis? Or are we spending energy discussing a problem that isn’t actually a problem? Dr. Haller will address the background and details of this question, followed by Q&A. The remainder of the event is dedicated to networking, sharing insight, and offering feedback on this and related potential projects. 

Researchers and pediatric/family healthcare providers interested in exploring this question are invited to discuss a potential community-academic partnership at this Pitch Partners. Select research teams may be invited to apply for a rapid seed funding opportunity. Participation does not guarantee a partnership or funding. 

This event is free to attend. Due to limited space, registration is required.
