WORKSHOP SPOTLIGHT: Black Women’s Health Disparities: Awareness & Solutions

The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the health inequities that harm Black women, their families and communities on a national scale. Investments in their health will have positive effects on the economy, decreased loss of life among mothers, infants and children and more healthy and vibrant communities. We’ll explore how Black women’s needs can be better prioritized in the healthcare industry and in policy initiatives.
