Conversations on COVID-19: Impacts on Communities of Color

While much is still unknown about COVID-19, according to data from the CDC, we do know that certain populations—African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, and the elderly, to name a few—are bearing the brunt of infections and deaths.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine have a long history of gathering leading experts to share the latest research and information on health equity. A new National Academies resource, Conversations on COVID-19: Impacts on Communities of Color, includes conversations with experts on a variety of topics related to minority health and COVID-19, as well as information and resources from the National Academies on issues related to health equity.
