June 18, 2020 / SCO News

On May 29th, more than 150 staff took part SCO’s third CARE TALKS open forum – In Living Color: COVID’s Illuminating Story of Inequity.

Keynote Speaker Dr. Isma Chaudhry, an expert in Ethnic Barriers to Primary Care and Minority and Immigrant Health, shared her insight on the longstanding health inequities that have been magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees broke into smaller breakout groups to delve deeper into some of the topics Dr. Chaudhry touched on and how it relates to their work.

CARE TALKS are a series of quarterly discussions on race-related topics open to all SCO staff that are hosted by SCO’s CARE Committee (Committee Advocating Racial Equity.)
