Kids and COVID Podcast

July 2021 update: the podcast is currently on hiatus due to some scheduling conflicts, but will be back up and running in the next couple of months.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected all of us in different ways. However, our children will be feeling the aftermath for decades to come. Health, anxiety, depression, education, social isolation, obesity, and more – all of these have been directly and indirectly influenced by this global crisis.

I am Dr Jeremy Toffle, MD, FAAP – board certified Pediatrician, husband, and father. My career has put me at the front lines of managing all of these effects and more on our youth. Join me as I discuss all things involving Kids and COVID.
