COVID-19 and Health Disparities

PART I Evaluate the literature

For this module, I have identified five very recently published articles/readings that provide an overall view of the association between COVID-19 and health disparities or health inequities.

Select two and read them carefully. You need to search for them. They are open access.

  • (Farley, J. H., Hines, J., Lee, N. K., Brooks, S. E., Nair, N., Brown, C. L., Doll, K. M., Sullivan, E. J., & Chapman-Davis, E. (2020). Promoting health equity in the era of COVID-19. Gynecologic oncology, S0090-8258(20)31092-1. Advance online publication.)

  • (Webb Hooper M, Nápoles AM, Pérez-Stable EJ. COVID-19 and Racial/Ethnic Disparities. JAMA. Published online May 11, 2020).

  • For each one of the two selected, state your “take away messages”.
