Health Disparities

An unfortunate effect of the COVID-19 pandemic is the recognition of significant health disparities. African Americans and indigenous peoples are at higher risk of severe illness and death due to COVID-19. This may be due to a combination of factors, including higher likelihood for underlying health issues combined with less access to health care. To better protect themselves, it is particularly important for vulnerable communities to have more access to resources to help protect their communities. Currently in Arizona, there are very high levels of transmission among the Navajo people. If you can help provide masks, food, or other support to these at-risk communities, please do so.
