Members of the Roundtable on Black Men and Black Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine and guest experts including APHA Past President Camara Jones will discuss ways to fully invest in the human capital available in Black communities by training doctors, engineers, and scientists who are then well-positioned to provide rapid and effective responses to subsequent waves of COVID-19 and other medical crises.
