Liverpool Responds: The New Norm
With Schools scheduled to reopen in September, this episode of Liverpool Responds focuses on the effect this, the biggest change to our restrictions yet, will have on children and society as a whole. Chaired by Professor Calum Semple, global leader of research in children’s health and outbreak medicine at the University of Liverpool and a consultant respiratory paediatrician at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, Professor Semple will be joined by guest panellists from the University of Liverpool and the city region to discuss the threat this change will pose on society and the fight against repeat waves of Coronavirus. The panel will also debate the potential psychological effect the return to school will have on children, next steps in terms of what the ‘New Norm’ for society should or will look like, and how this can be managed effectively to prevent or lessen the likelihood of a rise in the pandemic.
Guest panellists to include: Alumnus Matt Ashton, Director of Public Health for Liverpool, Councillor Barbara Murray Cabinet Member for Education, Employment and Skills and Professor Rhiannon Corcoran- Professor of Psychology and Public Mental Health.

After the main discussion, you will have the opportunity to ask the panel questions.

The event will also be live streamed via the University of Liverpool Facebook page. You do not need a Facebook account to gain access and instructions will be provided to all who register for this event.
