Upcoming Events

Thursday, December 3, 2:00 – 2:45 p.m. ET
Magellan Healthcare webinar, Holiday Emotional Wellness During COVID-19

Presenter: Dr. Candice Tate, MBA, Magellan Healthcare medical director

Candice Tate, MD, MBA. Magellan Healthcare medical directorSince the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, holidays, special events, picnics and celebrations have changed dramatically. For many people, this is the first time they have been confronted with empty chairs at the table because loved ones cannot or are unwilling to attend family gatherings. Cherished traditions and religious events may have been canceled due to the virus, with no clear end in sight to social distancing restrictions. People who live alone or far from family, or who have lost loved ones, may find holidays especially difficult. These changes can trigger a variety of emotions, from grief to guilt or anger.

Join Magellan Healthcare’s Medical Director, Dr. Candice Tate, for this webinar as she discusses various ways to find peace and moments of joy in the midst of the sadness and sense of loss that we may sometimes feel.
