Race, Medicine, and COVID-19

February 25, 2021
12:30 PM – 1:50 PM

Although coronavirus has disproportionately affected Black and Latinx communities in the U.S., advocacy promoting these communities to be among the first vaccinated has been met with hesitancy and suspicion due to past issues of racism, exploitation, and malpractice, including the notorious Tuskegee Institute experiments. Join New York Tech’s Chief Medical Officer and Vice President of Equity & Inclusion, Brian Harper, M.D., M.P.H, and panelists Jedan Phillips, M.D., associate dean for minority student affairs, School of Medicine at Stony Brook University, and Michele Reed, D.O., FAAFP, MS Family Medicine Healthcare P.C., as they discuss the nuances of race as it relates to COVID-19 and the distribution of the vaccine.
