The pandemic affects all of us, and some communities are experiencing harsher effects than others. Why is that, and what can we do about it? This panel brings together three experts with decades of experience in health research. They will discuss the pandemic’s impact on Black, Indigenous, and Latinx communities and invite you to join a conversation about how we can work toward health justice for all.
