Building Healthy Communities: COVID-19 and Equity in NH
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Warwick, RI 02886
In New Hampshire and across the country, the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting various communities in different ways. As the state rebuilds its economy and works to make New Hampshire a safe and welcoming place for all its residents, building the health of communities impacts the economic health of everyone, as well as the future economic vitality of the states.
During this webinar, speakers will share compelling data about the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on New Hampshire’s communities of color. Guest panelists Trinidad Tellez, MD, Director, Office of Health Equity, NH Department of Health and Human Services; Kirsten Durzy, MPH, Evaluator, Division of Public Health Services, NH Department of Health and Human Services; and Jessica Santos, PhD, Director of Community-Engaged Research, Institute on Assets and Social Policy, Brandeis University; will break down the numbers so that we may better understand their implications.
Join the discussion and learn why health disparities exist, how they impact everyone and what we can do as a community to begin to address them so that everyone in NH has the same opportunity to be healthy and thrive. Presented in partnership with Protect Our Care NH, this important conversation is complimentary and open to all who would like to attend.
