As a result of COVID-19, there has been a significant decrease in physical activity among youth. More kids are dropping out of sports more than ever before.
As an advocate for health services for children, Dr. Faustino Bernadett is happy to support State of Play which is a summit that will bring together athletes, professionals, and experts in the field of sports and physical activity to discuss the important role of sports in youth health and development, as well as, advance the conversation on play equity and accessibility for all.
The State of Play event will take place November 16th at 10:00 am - 12: 00 pm PT.
