Watch the recording and read the recap

The systemic inequities in the American healthcare system existed long before COVID-19 ever arrived. Throughout history, Black, Latino, Native, and Indigenous communities have borne a disproportionate burden in public health crises due to a lack of affordable and accessible treatment options. In part one of our discussion, we explored the role of structural racism; longstanding mistrust between communities and medical practitioners; and the need for authenticity in our support systems.

Join us Monday, July 20 at 8:30 a.m. as we continue the conversation around COVID-19’s effects on communities of color. We’ll discuss outreach and engagement strategies as well as ways to bridge the wellness divide with a panel of distinguished guests:

Alisha Brown, MNM, Senior Vice President, The Foundation for Sustainable Urban Communities and Director of the be well Health and Wellness Initiative

Michael Cortés, MSW, MPP, PhD, Scholar in Residence and Special Community Member at the DU Graduate School of Social Work and Executive Director of the Colorado Latino Leadership, Advocacy & Research Organization (CLLARO)

Jennifer Ho, PhD, Director of the Center for Humanities & the Arts and Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder and President of the Association of Asian American Studies
