Plenary: Addressing COVID-19 Inequities: Mapping the Work Ahead- Results From the Workgroup Surveys

Throughout the week attendees will have an opportunity to share thoughts and suggestions about:

  • pandemic factors that exacerbate health disparities, 
  • solutions that can create a sustainable impact, and
  • ways the health literacy community can respond to the pandemic.
These issues were viewed through the lens of practice/research and policy/advocacy. This plenary will present the findings from these workgroup surveys to encourage discussion and action in our work ahead.
