Part One of a Town Hall Series: COVID-19, Racism, and Mental Health in Black and Brown Communities
America/Chicago UTC -5
This is the first in a series of Racism & COVID-19 Town Hall Meetings hosted by the Institute for Healthy Equity Research and the Office of Gender Equity in Science and Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
Racism has informed the detrimental outcomes seen in nearly every aspect of life (e.g., economics, education, health and healthcare, justice system) for people of color, and for Black people in particular. We are facing an unprecedented moment in history with a global pandemic and a reinvigorated revolutionary movement. Both of these once-in-a-lifetime events have one thing in common: they have been spurred on by systemic racism.
Let's come together to better understand and explore the link between racism and COVID-19. We plan to host a series of meetings focused on different topics.
The first Town Hall meeting’s topic is titled: Mental Health and COVID-19: How Racism Impacts Mental Health in Black and Brown Communities. This Town Hall will be held on Tuesday, July 28th from 6pm – 7pm via Zoom.
