Systemic inequalities have created a far more dire impact for COVID-19 among minority populations, but long before the pandemic, communities of color have struggled with healthcare crises based on a lack of access to adequate facilities and practitioners. Religious organizations have functioned as bridges between mainstream healthcare and underserved communities, but the underlying issues remain. Panelists from the College of Humanities and Health Sciences discuss how these intersecting issues of diversity are essential to justice in healthcare.  

This webinar is featured in the “Wonder at Home” series presented by the University of Arizona Foundation.
