The Impact of COVID-19 on Latino Health

This webinar brings together experts to explore the impacts of systemic racism and social and economic inequalities on the health and well-being of Latinos, and to provide effective strategies for addressing these challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The expert panelists discuss:

  • The disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Latino communities and how unemployment, uninsurance, immigration status and limited English proficiency have been the strongest predictors of COVID-19 cases
  • The diverse history of Latinos in the United States and the need for more inclusion and representation of Latinos and other communities of color in clinical trials and studies
  • How a health plan in Florida is partnering to implement community-based primary care to meet the cultural and linguistic needs of the diverse Latino population in the state
