On Tuesday, February 16, the Augusta Metro Chamber is pleased to host Dr. Margaux Brown, Licensed Professional Counselor and Assistant Professor at Augusta University, to discuss the many roles of women, how they have evolved during the pandemic and the added stress women face while balancing their professional and personal lives including responding to others' needs and our own.


She will draw on her areas of expertise including diversity issues in mental health and mental health issues in schools. Dr. Brown will share ways to assist children as they deal with the stressors of different school environments related to the pandemic as well as offer practical de-stressing tips for everyday life.
