Teen Discussion Panel on the Pandemic
Youth voices offer unique perspectives, innovative ideas and valuable insights. As West Virginia continues to move through the pandemic, teens want to know more about issues surrounding the public health crisis – now and in the future. Experts will give young people the “tea” (teen slang for “the scoop”) on a host of topics surrounding the pandemic during a special panel discussion on April 12, 2021, at 4 p.m.
This event is hosted by WVU Extension Service 4-H Youth Development Teen Council,
in partnership with West Virginia State University and the West Virginia Joint
Interagency Task Force on COVID-19 vaccines. Experts will answer questions from
teens on a variety of topics, including the science behind COVID testing, vaccinations,
future pandemics, economy implications, education and other issues related to the
pandemic. The event will be moderated by members of 4-H’s Teen Council and Collegiate
4-H members from WVU and WVU Tech.
