The COVID-19 outbreak continues to have far-reaching health and economic consequences for the American public. Although coronavirus infects people regardless of our race and ethnicity, COVID-19 death rates are disproportionately higher in people of color, including Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPIs). According to Pew Research Center, about four-in-ten African American and Asian adults say people have acted as if they were uncomfortable around them because of their race or ethnicity since the beginning of the outbreak. In a nation experiencing the growing health inequity during the COVID-19 pandemic, what can the AAPI community do to work with all other communities and address this public health crisis together? This meeting brings together leading public health experts from various communities to share experience and lessons learned in addressing the gaps among underserved and vulnerable communities, and to unite all Americans to fight the root cause of health inequities.

Featured Speakers:
Dr. Monica Webb Hooper, Deputy Director of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, NIH

Dr. Howard Koh, 14th Assistant Secretary for Health, Harvey V. Fineberg Professor of the Practice of Public Health Leadership, Harvard University

Dr. Yvonne Maddox, Former Vice President for Research, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Former Acting Deputy Director, NIH

Dr. Leana Wen, Emergency Physician and Public Health Professor at George Washington University, Former Baltimore Health Commissioner

We're thankful for public servants like Peter Tsai, inventor of the N95 masks, who has come out of retirement to volunteer his expertise during the coronavirus pandemic. Read his story: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/2020/07/07/peter-tsai-n95-mask-covid/

Peter Tsai, the inventor of N95 masks, has been hailed a national hero. When confronted with COVID-19, the dedication to his country compelled him to leave retirement to help solve the N95 mask shortage.

“This is an opportunity for me to contribute to the community,” Tsai said. “If I can do this, it will be a good memory for the rest of my life.”

Born in Los Angeles to Korean-American immigrants, Kim enlisted in the U.S. Navy after graduating from high school and would later serve as a SEAL. He participated in more than 100 combat missions and accepted commissioning as an officer in 2009. He entered the Navy Medical Corps after graduating from UCSD - University of California San Diego, and he joined NASA’s 2017 Astronaut Candidate Class a year after graduating from HMX - Harvard Medical School. Kim remains on active duty as a Navy lieutenant at NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
