Colloquium for Racial Justice: Racial Inequities as Health Inequities

Date: Time: 4:00 pm–5:00 pm
Zoom
Contact: Jordan Soliz, jsoliz2@unl.edu
Why is COVID killing Black and Brown people at higher rates than white people? Does this extend to other health issues? Can anything be done?

There is an abundance of evidence pointing to racial and ethnic disparities related to the COVID-19 pandemic. These disparities reflect the existing inequities present in various aspects of health and health care in the United States. In this colloquium, panelists will discuss some of the social determinants and explanations for these disparities with the hopes of continual engagement on how we address this inequity locally and across our nation. Audience members will have the opportunity ask questions of the panelists.

Panelists:
– Jonathan Alcantar, Mexican American Studies, University of Northern Colorado
– Trey Andrews, Ethnic Studies (Latinx Studies) and Psychology
– Virginia Chaidez, Nutrition and Health Sciences and Communication Studies
– Margaret Huettl, Ethnic Studies (Native American Studies) and History
