Weekly Webinar Round-Up

I'd like to share several webinars happening this week that may be of interest:

The Coronavirus Pandemic: Health Inequities and Vulnerable Communities

Tuesday, April 28, 10 - 11am

Presented jointly by The Forum at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and The World from PRX & WGBH.

"The COVID-19 pandemic has hit underserved populations and communities of color particularly hard, exacerbating longstanding health disparities in the U.S.  In this Facebook Live Q&A, Dr. Mary Bassett, Director of the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University and Former Commissioner of Health for New York City, will unpack COVID-19 and health inequities based on geography, income, race, and occupation."

Pregnancy and Intimate Partner Violence During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Wednesday, April 29, 12 - 1pm

Presented by the National Center for Fatality Review & Prevention

"The primary strategy to combat COVID-19, “Stay at Home and Stay Safe” orders may be placing victims and survivors of domestic violence at even greater risk. Research shows that partner violence is associated with multiple adverse physical and mental health outcomes, including conditions that can increase vulnerability to severe COVID-19. Join this webinar to hear strategies for keeping pregnant women and families safe and to gain information on resources available to protect those who are the most vulnerable."

A Colorado Guide to Eviction and COVID-19

Wednesday, April 29, 12 - 1pm

Presented by Colorado Poverty Law Project

"The National Multifamily Housing Council reports that one-third of Americans did not pay any rent for the month of April 2020. Eviction moratoria have kept most housed, they but have not relieved tenants from the burden of past-due obligations. Many tenants are receiving 10-day eviction notices for nonpayment even while the moratoria are in place.

Please join for a one-hour continuing learning education program addressing Colorado residential evictions in the COVID-19 environment. The program will provide an update on tenant rental assistance sources, eviction moratoria, and best practices and strategies for tenants and their service providers in the COVID-19 environment. Speakers are Zach Neumann, Esq., founder, The Community Firm, and Jack Regenbogen, Attorney and Policy Advocate for the Colorado Center on Law and Policy."

Adverse Childhood Experiences During COVID-19

Thursday, April 30, 11am - 12pm

Presented by the Prevention Research Center at Colorado State University

"As children around the country are sheltering-in-place, some are exposed to potentially traumatic events. These events can undermine children’s sense of safety, stability, and bonding with caregivers. 

ACEs are common, linked to a large number of health conditions, and costly to families, communities, and society. When children are exposed to ACEs, they are also at higher risk for developing an overactive stress response.

Dr. Nathaniel Riggs, director of the CSU Prevention Research Center, will moderate a 45-minute discussion on ACEs during the COVID-19 pandemic with Dr. Sharon A. Hoover, a licensed clinical psychologist and associate professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine." 

Standing Against Racism in the Time of COVID

Sunday, May 3, 6 - 7:30pm

Presented by Asia Society Southern California

"Join Asia Society Southern California for a special virtual event to raise awareness and combat the escalating violence and intolerance towards those of Asian descent and other communities of color following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Policy makers and advocates, journalists and authors, student leaders and actors will come together for this vitally important conversation. They will discuss and explore the impact of COVID-19 related racism, government and public responses to preventing discrimination, and the significance of remaining engaged and empowered within our own communities."
