Addressing Community Inequalities During COVID-19 Recovery (Virtual)
The COVID-19 crisis has disproportionately impacted underserved communities throughout the Commonwealth resulting in food insecurity and inequitable access to healthcare. As a result of the economic harm created by the pandemic, one in five individuals and one in eight children in Massachusetts are unable to secure three meals a day. Healthcare facilities remain overburdened, and vulnerable individuals continue to struggle to gain access to testing and proper medical care.
As part of the Hunger to Health Collaboratory, the Museum of Science and WGBH Forum Network have convened a panel of experts to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on our most vulnerable communities. WGBH Innovation Hub host, Kara Miller will moderate the discussion with Catherine D’Amato, President and CEO of the Greater Boston Food Bank, Dr. Holly Oh, Chief Medical Director at the Dimock Health Center, and Marty Martinez, Chief of the Mayor’s Office of Health and Human Services for the city of Boston.
Free, but please RSVP if you plan to attend.
This virtual event will begin at 5pm Eastern Standard Time.
