There is increasing evidence that some racial and ethnic minority groups are being disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Inequities in the social determinants of health, such as poverty and healthcare access, affecting these groups are interrelated and influence a wide range of health and quality-of-life outcomes and risks. Come learn more about this issue from Ms. Mariah Marten from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

Speaker Bio:

Mariah Martin currently works as Equity and Cultural Competency Training Coordinator for MDHHS. There she provides program support to the Office of Equity and Minority Health (OEMH) related to equity, diversity and cultural and linguistic competency training. Her primary responsibilities include developing curricula, conducting training and assessing training impact. This position also works with other OEMH staff to provide consultation on best practices for organization/systems level implementation of cultural competency, diversity, equity and inclusion practices.
