Virtual: Addressing Health Disparities

Date: Thursday, April 6th at 1pm ET

According to the CDC, racial and ethnic minority groups throughout the United States experience higher rates of illness and death across a wide range of health conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, asthma, and heart disease, when compared to their White counterparts.
