Elevating and Recentering LGBTQ+ Health During the COVID-19 Pandemic
June 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Emergency Preparedness, Ethics and Equity Series, hosted by the Gillings School of Global Public Health, will present “Elevating and Recentering LGBTQ+ Health During the COVID-19 Pandemic.” The Covid-19 pandemic, and our response to this disease, have underscored deep, persistent societal inequities. The Emergency Preparedness, Ethics and Equity Series will explore how we can continue to foster inclusive excellence and health equity during the most turbulent of times. Speakers will explore ways to consistently apply culturally relevant, ethical and equitable decision-making so that the most vulnerable among us are not left further disenfranchised post-Covid-19.
This event is the fifth in the series and will be moderated by Dr. Darius Scott.
