Virtual

The Diversity Committee at Vermont Law School presents an Embedded Racism in the Law panel discussion, "A Discussion on the Disparate Impact of COVID-19 on People of Color" on Thursday, February 25 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

People of color are disproportionately affected by COVID-19. They have tested positive for the disease at higher rates and suffered more adverse health impacts from it than their white counterparts. This national trend also exists in Vermont. Join the Diversity Committee at VLS to explore and discuss these disparities.

Associate Professor of Pediatrics
at University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine
