In a matter of weeks, the COVID-19 pandemic transformed our everyday lives to accommodate social distancing, working and learning from home, and closing businesses. We know the numbers: how many Montanans contracted the disease, how many died. But what about some of the other profound effects on Montanans’ well-being? Join MSU researchers Carmen Byker Shanks, Michelle Grocke, and Justin Shanks when they share the results of one of the first statewide studies of the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on well-being. Learn what they discovered about food security, mental and physical health, and media use across the state. The goal of their work is to ultimately build policies, systems, and environments that support human resilience in the face of public health crises.
