Brain Waves: Pandemic’s Toll on Women’s Mental Health with Laurie Hernandez, Dr. Pooja Lakshmin, and Tasha Golden

On this episode of Brain Waves, we highlight the incredible toll that this past year has had on the mental health of women. Women are disproportionately forced to leave their jobs in order to be home with their children, or work in frontline professions like teaching and nursing. Laurie Hernandez sits down with Dr. Pooja Lakshmin, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at George Washington University School of Medicine and Founder of Gemma to discuss what these challenges have looked like from her perspective. Tasha Golden joins us to perform her music and give her point of view as a public health scientist.
