The COVID-19 pandemic is not only a global health concern but has also wreaked havoc on our economy. Millions of people are suddenly unemployed and many more are concerned they could be next as business activity has slowed or stopped in order to flatten the curve of the virus’ infection rate. Family resource management is crucial right now, and our guest, Dr. Elizabeth Kiss (pronounced “Kish”) previews for us a series of helpful, practical resources that will be posted online the week of April 20 under the theme “When Your Income Drops.”
