The Global COVID-19 Observatory and Resource Center is pleased to announce the launch of COVID Conversations, a weekly live webinar to discuss difficult issues, address pressing questions, and hear the experiences of our colleagues when it comes to caring for children with cancer during this pandemic.

We are undoubtedly living through global health history and we hope this weekly forum allows us to stay connected and remember that we may not be in the same boat, but we are weathering the same storm. Together, we can continue to strive for our goal that no child should die of cancer, anywhere or at any time.
