During the COVID-19 pandemic I have come to realize that vulnerable populations being deeply affected are families as they attempt to cope with the challenges of life in quarantine with children. As a student at Bellevue College and a parent myself, I felt compelled to create educational materials for these groups.
- “COVID-19 & Coping for Families”
- “What to Do When a Child or Family Member Gets the Flu or COVID-19”
- “Talking to Kids About the New Coronavirus”
- “Talking to Teens About the Novel Coronavirus & Answering Their Questions”
Faculty and students will soon be reintroduced into the Bellevue College environment with new safety rules and guidelines, so I developed deliverables highlighting key points for returning to campus.
- “Personal Safety Plan for Returning Employees and Students”
- “Personal Safety Plan for Returning Students in Clinical Placements”
For expecting and new student parents there are a couple of deliverables catered to their well-being
Lastly, resources around health equity,
- Avoiding Assumption-Making & Bias During the COVID-19 Pandemic
- Diminishing Health Disparity Gaps During a Pandemic
The BC Flu Team practicum has given me the ability to expand my knowledge and research skills so that I may better serve these populations during these times of uncertainty.
