Thanks for sharing that, Peggy. The real-time reporting has been a challenge for my anxiety. During the first few weeks of the rise in cases in the US, I found that I couldn't stop checking the numbers. I would wake in the middle of the night and look at the numbers and was so hyperfocused on it.
Emma Fox

Peggy- I feel similarly! I had a period at the beginning of the pandemic where I was consuming as much literature and data as possible, and had to have a conversation with my therapist about what was a healthy balance of consuming for knowledge and consuming for feeding my anxiety.
Emma Fox

Petina- My family and I have been having regular, weekly happy hours over zoom! I even bake a treat each week and drop it off at my family’s home each week. Sharing something I have made with loved ones helps me feel connected to them.
Emma Fox

Petina- I think you’ve identified an essential service that a lot of us have taken for granted during this time! My family recently had to purchase a faster internet package because so many of us are working from home. What would it look like if everyone in the country had access to internet for free?

Perhaps a theme for what are we missing— how does management of chronic health conditions get balanced with emergent health needs during emergency response?

The AAP has a great provider survey that gets at accessibility of telehealth that I can share.
Emma Fox

Jonathan- that’s a wonderful point. I think (and hope) that Telehealth will be embraced on a wider scale after this pandemic, especially in CYSHCN populations

In the post-event survey, there's a place to indicate any needs you might have. AMCHP will get all of those responses and respond accordingly!
