Unmasked: How the COVID-19 Crisis Exploited North Carolina's Most Vulnerable Communities

Date: October 8, 2020 5:30 PM

The current COVID crisis has clearly shown health disparities in communities of color and other marginalized communities within North Carolina and nationally. This live webinar will address the challenges North Carolina has faced over the course of the pandemic, highlight cases of patients in marginalized communities with COVID, and explore the history of disparities of care in this country and how that history informs the current crisis. The webinar will explore the factors which predispose communities of color to be disproportionately impacted, and conclude with an interdisciplinary panel focused on developing solutions, providing practical strategies for improving care for marginalized communities and looking at systemic efforts that can address health disparities.

Target audience: Physicians, Advanced Practice Providers, Nurses, Pharmacists and other health care professionals working with communities of color
