Join C2ST and our panel of local experts for a panel discussion on health inequalities and how they are contributing to COVID-19 rates. Across the United States, tracking COVID-19 has indicated disproportionate rates affecting African American and Black communities. For Chicago, this means taking a closer look at the experiences of Southside and Westside communities. While research is in the initial stages,  examining existing inequalities and what they mean for a community’s health provides insight into this ongoing issue.

This program is available with Spanish subtitles

C2ST’s Science From the Frontlines is an ongoing series of virtual events tackling topics such as vaccines, public health, community best practices, and other subjects relevant to the COVID-19 epidemic. This series of virtual events will also serve as a fundraiser for C2ST and the frontline efforts to combat COVID-19.

While we are concerned about our continued well-being as an organization, we know that our community is also in peril. To make sure we are doing our part for the community, 50% of all donations from the “Science From the Frontlines” series will be shared with the Illinois PPE Network. When you make a donation during this campaign, not only will you be ensuring that cutting-edge science will be accessible to the public, but you will also be helping the effort to stop the spread of COVID-19.
