Other webinars on health disparities
In addition to the upcoming webinar, Dr. Williams presented the first webinar in our Health Disparities series. “Understanding the COVID-19 Impact on MS in People of Color” was presented on May 14, 2020. The effects of COVID-19 in the United States have disproportionately impacted the health of racial and ethnic minority populations, especially within the African American and Hispanic communities. This webinar explores the scope of COVID-19 health disparities among vulnerable populations; social, economic, and health inequities that increase the risk of COVID-19; and strategies to reduce risk and optimize health outcomes for vulnerable populations. The program also features an extended Q & A session that addresses issues of MS treatment management, safely accessing medical care in the community, and possible COVID-19 treatments and vaccines.
