A Year of COVID: Checking In on the Pandemic’s Effects on the Mind and Body

Over the past year, COVID-19 has changed the way we all function on a daily basis and which has, in some cases, affected our mental and physical health. Join a virtual moderated Q&A, sponsored by the Auxiliary and Corporators of Emerson Hospital, where health care clinicians will discuss topics like anxiety and grief, addiction support, sleep management and self-care. Learn more about managing and living during the time of COVID-19 and hear answers to questions on how to fight the mental and physical fatigue. Click here to register.

Past Events

 

2020 Tree of Lights Ceremony

For more than 30 years, the Auxiliary of Emerson Hospital has been lighting the evergreen tree outside the main entrance in honor and memory of loved ones and significant people who have touched our lives. The funds raised from this community-wide event support pediatric care at Emerson Hospital. In 2020, we continued that tradition with a virtual Tree of Light ceremony on December 8. A warm thank you to all who made our first virtual Tree of Lights a success! We could not have done it without the support of our sponsors, donors, and community. For more information on Tree of Lights or the Auxiliary of Emerson Hospital, email emersonauxiliary@gmail.com.

Healthy Eating & Lifestyle Webinar Series

Beginning in the fall of 2020, the Auxiliary began hosting virtual panel discussions focused on wellness. The first was Fall into Wellness: Eating with the Season in Mind, which included an Emerson primary care physician, a licensed dietician and a local chef sharing tips and recipes designed to support your immune system through the fall and winter. That following January, they hosted Fresh Start: Starting 2021 with Healthy Habits. Panelists offered suggestions for healthy snacks, comfort foods, and lifestyle changes, as well as ways to stay active and exercise at home during the winter.

The Connect Effect: Loneliness Webinars

In 2020, the Auxiliary partnered with Emerson's corporators to host two webinars focused on loneliness. Panelists included clinicians and community leaders who spoke about the need to combat feelings of isolation while creating healthy social connections for seniors, parents and children.
