Almost a year into the pandemic Canadians are still coming to terms with what they have lost, whether it’s the loss of loved ones or the life we had before the pandemic. This week White Coat, Black Art explores the stories of Canadians who have found ways to be resilient in light of that loss. In the final installment of the special series “Prescription for Resilience: Coping with Covid,” we feature stories that will lift you up and make you recognise the inner strength that we all have. 26:30

The global pandemic has led to devastating loss and isolation for Canadians and people around the world. The challenges have been immense, and we are all looking for ways to cope. One of the greatest resources we have right now is one another.

Prescription for Resilience: Coping with COVID is a special series of stories presented by CBC Radio One's White Coat, Black Art. Canadians share what they have done to cope and where they have found resilience in their daily lives, in both big and small ways. The hope is that these stories will provide inspiration that can be applied to your own life.

Some of these stories will be featured in the White Coat, Black Art programs airing on February 13 and February 27.
