The COVID-19 pandemic in the United States has disproportionately affected communities of color, people living in poverty, and other marginalized groups. Speakers will explore how COVID-19 exposure risk, the quality of COVID-19-specific medical care, and social determinants of health contribute to disparate trends in COVID-19 infection and mortality seen in the United States. Speakers will be asked to comment on the major public health needs, such as data collection and studies performed, that are required to support a more equitable pandemic response.
After attending this seminar series, participants will be able to:
Describe major patterns of health disparities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States
Identify key drivers of COVID-19-related health disparities
List three limitations of publicly available COVID-19 datasets for studying health inequities
Describe how public health researchers can support a more equitable pandemic response
