Emergency Preparedness, Ethics and Equity Speaker Series

Fostering inclusive excellence during turbulent times

Fostering inclusive excellence during turbulent times

The COVID-19 pandemic — and our response to this disease — have underscored deep, persistent societal inequities. 

The Emergency Preparedness, Ethics and Equity Series, brought to you by the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, explores how we can continue to foster inclusive excellence and health equity during the most turbulent of times. Speakers explore ways to consistently make culturally relevant, ethical and equitable decisions so that the most vulnerable among us are not left further disenfranchised post-COVID-19.

Topics in this series include scholarship through adversity, pandemic protection for people who are incarcerated, ensuring treatment and vaccine accessibility to all communities, and more.
