Event announcement from the Nisonger Center

Disparities in health care for people who have disabilities and for people of color was and is a common experience in our society. The Covid-19 pandemic and social unrest of 2020 sharpened our awareness of these disparities, particularly at the intersection of race and disability. We bring together today a diverse panel to discuss policy and practice issues impacting scarcity of medical resources.
