- COVID-19 and the Health of Our Communities
April 27, 2020
9:00 am - 10:30 am
COVID-19 impacts all of us: adults not able to work, children not able to go to school, health care workers pushed to their limits; we are all experiencing this new and often painful reality. But for our Wisconsin communities who were suffering before this pandemic, the inequities of our systems -- healthcare, housing, education, employment -- have laid bare far greater threats to their health.
In Wisconsin, our minority and rural communities are experiencing this pandemic on a much different scale. What does the data tell us about who is experiencing the greatest risks to health and life? What can we learn from front line organizations embedded in these communities? And what is the role of the philanthropic community in a state that contributes among the lowest percentage per capita to public health in the nation?
Please join us to hear from:

Aaron Perry, Founder and CEO of Rebalanced-Life Wellness Association - AP Speaker Bio 042120 BW pdf
Tim Size, Founder and Executive Director of the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative (RWHC) - TS Bio
