COVID-19 Miniseries Episode 30: Mayo Clinic Q&A – Addressing Health Disparities Amplified by COVID-19

This episode is shared from Mayo Clinic Q&A and was recorded in May 2020.

Guest: Irene G. Sia, M.D.; Mark L. Wieland, M.D.

Host:  Sanjeev (Sanj) Kakar, M.D. (@sanjkakar)

Minorities are being affected disproportionately by the COVID-19 pandemic. Early data shows that African Americans and other U.S. ethnic minorities have contracted COVID-19 at a higher rate and experience greater sickness and a higher death rate than other Americans. 

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Irene Sia, a Mayo Clinic infectious diseases expert, and Dr. Mark Wieland, a Mayo Clinic community internal medicine physician, discuss ethnic disparities and COVID-19, including research being done with the Rochester Healthy Community Partnership.
