Press release from the E.W. Pearson Project Collaborative:
Make plans to attend the COVID’s Impact on the African American Community
Webinar hosted by the E.W. Pearson Project Collaborative on Thursday,
September 30, 2021 at 6pm.
According to the Center for Disease Control, “The COVID-19 pandemic has
brought social and racial injustice and inequity to the forefront of public health. It
has highlighted that health equity is still not a reality as COVID-19 has unequally
affected many racial and ethnic minority groups, putting them more at risk of
getting sick and dying from COVID-19.” This phenomenon has been felt in the
local Asheville and Buncombe County areas as well.
This virtual program will include information on COVID-19, the effects of the
virus as well as provide information on what efforts are being put in place to
decrease the spread of the virus. There will be representatives from the local health
community, community members, and individuals who have been personally
impacted by COVID-19 speaking on the issue.
This event is free to attend; however, individuals do have to register in advance.
