Social Justice Series: Health Disparities and COVID-19

August 7 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Racial and economic disparities in health care are known factors contributing to higher morbidity and mortality among those with lower income, and black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), as compared to white Americans. These disparities have a dual impact – not only are they resulting in differences in the actual care and treatment that COVID-19 patients receive, but they also put people in BIPOC communities at higher risk of contracting COVID-19 in the first place. Join a panel of local community members on Friday, August 7 at 12 PM on Zoom and from the Museum’s Facebook page on Facebook Live. Questions may be submitted in advance to info@wvmcc.org, or live via Zoom Q&A, Zoom Chat, or FB Live. Live Spanish translation will be provided by Clarius Languages, to access this feature participants need to log-in with the Zoom log-in and select the Spanish audio channel under the world icon.
