From Disparity to Equity

Our expert board of panelists will discuss racial health disparities that impact communities in New York City, with a particular focus on its intersection with housing instability.
Questions addressed will include:
What racial health disparities has COVID-19 pandemic exposed and what lessons have we learned?
What is already being done and what further investments are necessary to address racial health disparities?
Additionally, the panel will discuss topics related to the impact of parental death on New York’s children, structural inequalities in New York’s health care system and efforts by the public hospital system to have a larger impact on underserved patients.
A question and answer period will follow the initial the discussion.
This is an absolutely essential conversation, one that we must continue to have in order to finally end homelessness.
