YWCA to Host: Overcoming Racial Health Disparities and Beyond Covid-19

Each year YWCA Greenwich honors the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a community event that focuses on a topic that he would have cared deeply about.

Last year, they examined Women’s Power and Vote at 100.

This year, their event will be virtual and focus on racial health disparities, particularly in the time of COVID-19.

The session, entitled Overcoming Racial Health Disparities: During and Beyond COVID-19, will be hosted via Zoom on Jan 21, 2021 07:00pm.

YWCA has secured an impressive group of experts to discuss this important topic:

  • Moderator Tiffany Donelson: CT Health Foundation President and CEO
  • Panelist Dr. Juliet Mushi: Yale Medical School OBGYN and expert in maternal/fetal health
  • Panelist Dr. Irene Blanco: Albert Einstein Associate Dean for the Office of Diversity Enhancement and Rheumatologist
  • Panelist Dr. Sten Vermund: Yale School of Public Health Dean; Yale School of Medicine Professor of Pediatrics

This free event requires pre-registration, which can be found on the YWCA website.
