Confronting COVID-19: The Toll of the Virus on LA's Most Vulnerable Communities

10:00 am

 

COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted Los Angeles’ Black and Latinx populations and other ethnic minority and disadvantaged groups. Persistent health disparities combined with housing patterns, lack of financial resources, and other factors have put members of these groups at the highest risk in the current pandemic. During this webinar, we will examine the social, economic, and geographic factors that have contributed to the spread of the disease and further deepened race and class disparities. The speakers will focus on local data showing how inequalities vary by neighborhood and shed light on some of the reasons for these neighborhood differences. A moderated discussion will follow. The goal is to provide participants with new tools to tailor the public health response and inform public policy.
