On Friday, April 23rd, join the Population Association of America and the Association of Population Centers for a virtual congressional briefing.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made clear that factors such as age and pre-existing conditions intersect with socioeconomic and demographic characteristics—such as race-ethnicity, gender, and income—to influence
both the onset and severity of the disease, as well as its trajectory. Not only has the pandemic laid bare stark differences in health and mortality for different groups of people, but also dramatic inequalities in outcomes such as education, work, family dynamics, and mental health. In this briefing, population scientists will share research findings on the disparate impacts of COVID and what additional research and data are needed to understand and address its far-reaching effects.
The event will be moderated by Dr. Noreen Goldman and panelists include Dr. Caitlyn Collins, Dr. Marc Garcia, and Dr. Anna Gassman-Pines.
