    2020 was a year when we were confronted with stressors that most of us have never experienced before. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on the lives of billions of people across the world, which is now a very different place since early 2020. As we head into mid-2021, there is a renewed sense of hope with COVID-19 vaccination programs being distributed in many countries.

    Join OABC and Cigna, the global health services provider, as they share the results of their COVID-19 Global Impact Study which was conducted to understand the impact of COVID-19 on people’s health and wellbeing on Tuesday, May 25, at 10 AM.
