During the last several weeks, unmeasurable fear, confusion, and hope have welcomed itself into the homes of many people. During these unprecedented times, due to COVID-19, many have taken precautionary measures to counter the newly emerging pandemic.

Virtual Symposium Goals
The NAAHP COVID-19 Virtual Symposium Part 1, seeks to engage psychologists, medical practitioners, advocates, and business owners in a discussion on COVID-19’s impact on the Haitian American Community. The purpose of this digital conversation is to engage Haitian professionals in an in-depth dialogue that highlights community response needs and gaps in services. The overarching goal is to provide information regarding resources, best practices, and emerging recommendations to address the current climate.
This Virtual symposium is designed to center the voices, experiences, and recommendations of experts as it relates to their local, municipal, and regional response to the pandemic, especially among the Haitian Communities.
