The organization’s Founder and Director, Dr. Vincent T. Covello, and Deputy Directory, Dr. Randall Hyer, MD, will be presenting during the webinar.

“As we work to prioritize our Members during this most uncertain time, we invite Federal Employees nationwide to learn along with us during this live webinar,” said M. Shane Canfield, CEO of WAEPA. “I look forward to hosting these public health experts on the webinar.”

Dr. Covello and Dr. Hyer are senior consultants to the World Health Organization (WHO), and the presentation will include a 20- minute overview on how to manage stressors in the current information environment, at work and at home, and a 30-minute Q&A session with Dr. Covello, who has been closely working with public health directors during the COVID-19 pandemic.
