OMH Virtual Symposium on COVID-19
Registration is now open for Advancing the Response to COVID-19: Sharing Promising Programs and Practices for Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities, a virtual symposium hosted by the U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) taking place on September 17, 2020. Join us to learn from national, state, tribal and local experts leading these efforts to help public health leaders and community organizations confront the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on racial and ethnic minority populations.
About the Virtual Symposium

- COVID-19 racial and ethnic data and data-informed response
- How health equity can drive state, territorial, and tribal COVID-19 response
- Community-based and culturally appropriate approaches for addressing COVID-19 among racial and ethnic minority populations
