Recorded COVID-19: Effects on Underserved and Minority Populations

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread infections across the globe, with hundreds of millions of cases confirmed worldwide. Although all population groups are affected, the pandemic has affected minority and underserved populations disproportionately compared to other groups.  This presentation will examine the reasons why these groups have been more significantly affected and will identify ways to alleviate these health disparities. This project was funded in part through a grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, #OT2HL156812 – Alabama Community Engagement Alliance against COVID-19 Disparities (Alabama CEAL) project, under subcontracts with Research Triangle Institute and Westat, Inc.
