Virtual Summit Health and Wellness: Our Health: La Primera Riqueza es la Salud

The COVID-19 pandemic is compounding historical social inequities and disproportionately impacting Latinos and communities of color. A contributing factor is that Latinos are essential workers on the front lines, including health professions, vital retail services, and food production jobs and are at far greater risk of exposure. This panel examines the ways the coronavirus has impacted the well-being of Latinos. Explores steps to promote greater health access for the Latino community while gaining valuable advice from experts on how to protect ourselves and our families against COVID-19.
