Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center
Title:The COVID Truth - Examining Racial, Social and Health Injustice
Type:Virtual Event
About:Virginia Garcia’s 2021 Health Care Symposium will reflect on this past year, critically examining COVID-19’s disproportionate consequences in vulnerable communities. As a health care provider during this pandemic, we witnessed the barriers our patients face daily – inequitable food access, lack of affordable housing, and anti-immigration policies to name a few. These barriers grew even larger illuminating an ever-widening chasm between the availability of services and access to them.

On Thursday, April 8, from 12-1pm, our outstanding panelists will tackle these topics at our virtual Health Care Symposium; The COVID Truth: Examining Racial, Social, and Health Injustice.
