Tale of Two Pandemics: Illuminating Structural Racism and COVID

Powered by Research Commons at University LibrariesStarting in 2015, the Interdisciplinary Dialogues have addressed such important issues as income inequality, immigration, social media and elections, and sex and gender in academia. Please note that all Fall 2020 events will be held virtually via Zoom. Registrants will receive an event link in their confirmation email.

As the United States faces a global COVID-19 pandemic that has killed over 200,000 and confronts longtime and systemic racism and violence against Black Americans, researchers have highlighted a clear intersection between structural racism and high risk situations for contracting COVID. By drawing from research expertise, this panel explores the concurrent pandemics of racism and COVID, causes of inequity, and ways in which our community can address them.

Panelists include:

Dr. Rashawn Ray, Professor of Sociology, Executive Director of the Lab for Applied Social Science Research (LASSR)

Dr. Jennifer Roberts, Assistant Professor, Kinesiology, Director of Public Health Outcomes and Effects of the Built Environment (PHOEBE) Laboratory

Amelia Jamison, MAA, MPH, Faculty Research Affiliate at the Maryland Center for Health Equity, PhD Candidate at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
