Join MassBio's Edie Stringfellow for a monthly conversation on equity, diversity, inclusion and engagement, or as we like to call it, EDIE!
The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted communities of color: recent data has shown
that Latino, Black, Pacific Islander, and Indigenous Americans have a COVID-19 death rate of at least twice that of White and Asian Americans. While the United States will need spend time addressing the structural inequities that drove these outcomes, what can and should the country do to prioritize equity in this next phase of the fight against COVID-19?
Now – four months into the vaccine distribution process – our panelists will discuss:
- Expanding access to the vaccine and other health interventions
- The power of public health education campaigns
- The important role of racial and ethnic demographic data in pandemic decision-making
- Key takeaways from COVID-19 pandemic that can fuel systemic change across the healthcare industry
Webinar link will be emailed to participants the Friday before - you can also access it from the "Live Stream" tab below. This event is for members-only.
MassBio makes every effort to accommodate our entire community at each of our events. Please let us know at least three days in advance of the event if you require special accommodations, such as captioning.
