This webinar is co-hosted by the Department of Family Medicine and Primary Care and the Adler Museum of Medicine.

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended nearly every aspect of life, yet within this flux, new opportunities have emerged in rethinking fundamental aspects of well-being, while learning from the past. In South Africa, we remain in the grip of multiple intersecting epidemics, some on-going, like our collective fight against HIV, others less visible, like the hard-to-grasp epidemic of mental health and continuous trauma. In conversation with Anastasia Ugwuanyi, Nabeelah Bemath will reflect on students' recent experiences in coping with COVID-19, while Pierre Brouard will relate these experiences to the many lessons learnt from South Africa's response to HIV/AIDS.
