While we are all vulnerable to the potential health risks of COVID-19, it has become apparent that this pandemic is not affecting all communities equally. The communities who are already facing health disparities, in areas like access to health care, equal medical treatment, and underlying comorbidities, are experiencing far worse health outcomes and far higher mortality rates as a result of COVID-19.  

For this hour-long “Ask the Experts” webinar, we invite you to submit your questions and participate in a critical panel discussion with University of Illinois experts. The panelists will draw on their research and expertise on health disparities and provide insights as to how and what must be done to improve health outcomes for these vulnerable communities.
