COVID-19 and Racial/Ethnic Minority Communities
Sept. 9, 2020
On Sept. 17, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health (OMH) is hosting Advancing the Response to COVID-19: Sharing Promising Programs and Practices for Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities, a virtual symposium highlighting state, tribal, territorial and community-based efforts to address COVID-19 among racial and ethnic minority and American Indian and Alaska Native populations.
The symposium, which begins at 11 a.m. CDT, will disseminate promising practices, programs and strategies for combating COVID-19 in communities that have suffered historic systemic health and social inequities. These inequities put racial and ethnic minority groups at elevated risk of contracting COVID-19 or experiencing severe illness. For more information and to register, go to the OMH website.
