Pursuing Data on COVID-19: The Health Inequity Multiplier

Webinar //


Apr 28 2020, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST


As we learn more about COVID-19, the information about the pandemic we receive is fluid. Most recently, there have been some limited data regarding the disproportionate burden of the pandemic on communities of color. This is of course a major concern for all who are focused on achieving health equity. Join this webinar convened by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Roundtable on the Promotion of Health Equity.



  • Provide an overview of COVID-19 demographic data: what we know now
  • Outline limitations of data as it stands: methodological, organizational and political
  • Share any substantive, validated disaggregated data that describe potential areas of disparity, including race, gender, geography, and socioeconomic status


  • Stephen B. Thomas, PhD, University of Maryland School of Public Health
  • Lawrence Brown, PhD, MPA, University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute
  • Rebekah Gee, MD, MS, MPH (NAM), Louisiana State University Healthcare Services; Louisiana State University Schools of Public Health & Medicine

NOTE: Zoom information will be provided via email to registrants the day before the meeting.
