Racial Disparities at Every Stage of COVID-19, Webinar Recording

Racial Disparities at Every Stage of COVID-19, Webinar Recording

Category : News/Events

Overview

This is a 90-minute recording of a webinar held on February 8, 2021.

This webinar discussed how the existing racial disparities and health inequities in our country have amplified the effects of COVID-19. From infection rates, hospitalizations, and deaths, communities of color have been impacted by COVID-19 at higher rates. Now, after more than a year since the world woke to a spreading viral pandemic, an effective COVID-19 vaccine offers protection and a promise of normal life. But a final-step challenge persists – getting the vaccine into the arms of people who need it most. Please join us for a presentation and conversation with Taison Bell, MD and moderated by Sam Fulwood, PhD.

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss how communities of color are more vulnerable to the COVID-19 infection
  • Identify reasons Black and Brown people are reluctant to embrace the vaccine
  • Discuss how minority community leaders, especially in the medical profession, are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccination efforts
  • Discuss how social determinants of health and systemic racism have led to worse outcomes for COVID-19
