Description

Dr. Guadalupe Marquez-Velarde discusses the relationship between health disparities in COVID-19 and police brutality, both overt manifestations of systemic racism. She explains why Black, Indigenous, and Latinx communities have been disproportionately impacted by the global pandemic and how police violence contributes to poor COVID-outcomes via the stress process. She also provides examples of how police brutality is in itself a social determinant of health.
