SARS-CoV-2 Infection Among California Farmworkers: Monterey County
October 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
COVID-19 and Health Inequities Seminar Series
Joseph Lewnard and Maximiliano Cuevas
The COVID-19 pandemic in the United States has disproportionately affected communities of color, people living in poverty, and other marginalized groups. Speakers will explore how COVID-19 exposure risk, the quality of COVID-19-specific medical care, and social determinants of health contribute to disparate trends in COVID-19 infection and mortality seen in the United States. Speakers will be asked to comment on the major public health needs, such as data collection and studies performed, that are required to support a more equitable pandemic response.
