COVID-19 health disparities in New Hampshire

Office of Health Equity to discuss health disparities  in New Hampshire on Webinar this week

Concord, NH —The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Protect Our Care NH and Granite State Progress to offer a complimentary webinar on health disparity in New Hampshire on Thursday, August 6, 2020. Join the discussion and learn why health disparities exist, how they impact everyone and what we can do as a community to begin to address them so that everyone in New Hampshire has the same opportunity to be healthy and thrive.

In New Hampshire and across the country, the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting various communities in different ways. During this webinar, representatives from the New Hampshire Office of Health Equity (OHE), the Division of Public Health Services (DPHS), and the Brandeis Institute on Assets and Social Policy (IASP) will share compelling data about the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on New Hampshire's communities of color. Guest panelists Trinidad Tellez, MD, NH Dept. of Health and Human Services’ Director of Office of Health Equity, Kirsten Durzy, MPH, NH DHHS’ Evaluator of Division of Public Health Services, and Jessica Santos, PhD, Brandeis University’s Director of Community-Engaged Research at the Institute on Assets and Social Policy, will break down the numbers so that we may understand their implications.

As the state rebuilds its economy with little guidance from Washington and works to make New Hampshire a safe and Unknown-1welcoming place for all its residents, building the health of communities impacts the economic health of everyone, as well as the future economic vitality of the state.

A large portion of this webinar is reserved for Q&A; and participants must register in advance to attend the webinar at  https://bit.ly/GCCCwebinar08062020
