01 Oct Health Disparities and the Response to COVID-19 in Wisconsin – October 6-8 @ 11:30am – 1:00pm
Speakers from the Medical College of Wisconsin, the City of Milwaukee, and the Greater Milwaukee Foundation will discuss response by the academic medical center, government, and community to COVID-19 and how we can work together to protect vulnerable populations as the pandemic continues.
Sessions will be structured in three 90-minute sessions hosted virtually from 11:30am-1pm CDT October 6th, 7th, and 8th. Each session will include three 20-minute presentations followed by a Q&A session.
The first session on October 6th will focus on the underlying biology and epidemiology of COVID-19 and how the pandemic is impacting existing health disparities. The second session on October 7th will focus on how projects funded by the Advancing Healthier Wisconsin Endowment to address health disparities noted early in the pandemic addressed gaps in screening, prevention, and care for vulnerable populations. Finally, the third session on October 8th will conclude the series with a discussion on the local government and community response to the pandemic.
