Evaluating Health Disparities: Virtual Graduate Student Panel
For our first virtual event of the year, we hosted a graduate student panel about health disparities on Thursday, August 20 from 6:00-7:30pm PST over Zoom. As patient health advocates, we are all very aware of health disparities in our community, and with COVID-19, they are more prominent than ever. Our goal was to take advantage of these unique circumstances by creating open conversations about what health disparities are and how to address them.
Much thanks to the three accomplished graduate students who provided their perspectives on this panel. Learn more about them here.
