The Intersection of COVID-19 and Health Equity
- Renslow Sherer, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of Chicago
The COVID-19 pandemic is spotlighting the health inequities that already existed in the United States. What we are seeing play out right now is textbook inequities, racism, institutional and structural racism, and socioeconomic disparities. These are the key factors that have been exacerbating the effects on people of color of this pandemic in terms of infection rates, death rates, hospitalization and testing. This session will explore the disproportionate impact that COVID-19 is having on minority communities and what we can do now to not only combat long-term health impacts, but also engage communities to help them, and to help us, do a better job at preventing further disparities.
- Understand the disproportionate impact that COVID-19 is having on minority communities.
- Learn ways to combat long-term health impacts of the pandemic on minority populations.
- Identify prevention efforts to address health inequities and racism
