In our recent survey, when asked “What resources would be most helpful to you right now,” a majority of you responded that you need help handling the added stress and anxiety of COVID-19.

With that in mind, we’d like to share details about an upcoming Zoom webinar: “Finding balance during crisis: Tools from a pain psychologist” on Monday, May 4, at 7 pm ET, with pain psychologist Shamin Ladhani, PsyD.

Dr. Ladhani will discuss strategies for staying mentally well during a crisis–including the current pandemic. She will also explain some of the emotions we experience during times of crisis, and talk about how stress affects the immune system, which is especially relevant for those with chronic illness.

Dr. Ladhani will then take some time to answer questions from the audience.
