Webinar: Inequality, Vulnerability, and Health Justice – Learning from the Pandemic 🗓

The Columbia University Masters of Bioethics Program organizes a webinar sponsored by the Empire State Bioethics Consortium on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM ET (Cyprus Time 1:00-2:30 am)

Data from the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States reveal stark disparities in vulnerability to infection and illness by race, ethnicity, income, immigration status, and neighborhood. Vulnerabilities produced by social inequalities are health inequities, a form of injustice. This webinar features perspectives from Texas, Colorado, and New York on learning from Covid-19 to work toward justice in health, focusing on Black health, immigrant health, and the role of health systems.
