This year, UCLA medical students are joined by public health students to continue the tradition of bringing together faculty, students, and community members for the annual Healthcare Symposium. Historically, this event has sought to explore new and emerging trends in healthcare, with the hope of catalyzing discussion and engagement by students, faculty, and the broader community. This year’s symposium will explore the impact of COVID-19 on mental health, racism, incarceration, and health disparities. More specifically, we hope the symposium will provide a solution-oriented lens to address the physical, emotional, and psychosocial vulnerabilities exposed by the COVID- 19 pandemic in the United States. We hope that you can join us!
