Inclusive Informatics: Equity and Justice in Health Data

Sep 24 2021 - 11:30am

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the role that race, income, education and environment play in the health of a community — with underserved, vulnerable populations experiencing the highest rates of infection and death from the virus.

Join the College of Health Solutions for a free, half-day seminar to examine how these health disparities impact the health of our communities and how biomedical informatics research and data can help to achieve equity and justice for all populations impacted by COVID-19.

This in-person event will be held at the ASU Health Futures Center at 6161 E. Mayo Blvd. in Phoenix and is sponsored by the College of Health Solutions’ Biomedical Informatics Affinity Network and the Students of Biomedical Informatics at Arizona State University.
