Event Details

The National Governors Association, in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Bar Association, launched a webinar series on Equity and Policy Preparedness during Public Health Emergencies. Participants in all four webinars will consider lessons learned from past public health emergencies to inform their implementation of best practices for the future.

The second webinar will delve into the distribution and uptake of remedies and resources during public health emergencies. The discussion will center around how to ensure that the needs of the communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19, such as communities of color, are being met. The question of whether and how historical racism in medical research (e.g., the Tuskegee Study) influences the uptake of prevention measures in racial and ethnic minority communities will also be addressed, along with strategies to support uptake by these communities in the current COVID-19 context.
