Health Equity and Advocacy Amidst COVID /

Workshop Facilitators: Student National Medical Association

In this workshop, we will explore the health equity implications of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in advocacy. This will serve as an examination and discussion of the consequences facing black, Latinx, white, and Asian communities. In this session, participants will learn how to create positive change through public policy while becoming familiarized with the concept of advocacy and health equity. This workshop was created by Student National Medical Association (SNMA) at the UCF College of Medicine and will be led by Gregorie Constant-Peter MD, FAAFP, Assistant Medical Director at Correctional Health Services Orlando, Florida.
