She has been working with members of Congress on a Health Equity Data Collection Bill, as well as research directions that can result in better models of prediction and preparation to reduce the number of infections and deaths in the Black community.
Dr. Richard Allen Williams, clinical professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, is president and founder of the Minority Health Institute, the organization that is presenting the webinar.
