Abstract:  Systemic racism has been termed a public health crisis.  The global coronavirus pandemic has only exacerbated the racial divides in health, as people of color of all ages have been shown to be more susceptible to the virus. But too many Americans of color lack access to quality care and simple routine preventive medicine. Eighteen speakers will explore what the healthcare system is doing both to combat inequities across race, age, and gender and to improve health outcomes for all Americans.
