Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States, numerous news outlets have published scores of articles showing how Black Americans and other Americans of Color are dying at higher rates than their White counterparts. Is the death index germane only to COVID-19, or is this part of America’s history of embedded racial medical bias?

You are invited to a Zoom webinar hosted by a distinguished panel of doctors and health policy experts will address why minorities are dying from COVID-19 at such dramatically higher rates in communities across America. They will answer your questions and offer concrete ways you can advocate for change.
