The effect of COVID-19 on social determinants of health – Part 2

On this episode, we consider lessons learned from the impact COVID-19 has made on the already huge disparities in care that racial and ethnic minorities experience. Our discussion establishes how health care organizations, many of whom are struggling financially, can focus their resources on alleviating those care disparities without bearing a heavy burden in the process.
