Join us for a discussion on racial health disparities that impact communities in New York City, with a particular focus on the intersection with housing instability. What has the COVID-19 pandemic exposed and what lessons have we learned? What is already being done and what further investments are necessary to address racial health disparities?
Our expert panelists will discuss topics such as the impact of parental death on New York’s children, structural inequalities in New York’s health care system that exacerbate health disparities and efforts by the public hospital system to have a larger impact on underserved patients.
Bobby Watts, Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, will be providing the opening remarks.
There will be an opportunity for Q&A following the panel discussion.
The panel will be moderated by Dr. Pamela Riley, Care For the Homeless Board Member and Medical Director at the Department of Health Care Finance.
