The Heartland Centers for Public Health and Community Capacity Development at Saint Louis University would like to invite you to our Health Disparities Webinar Series. Between January and May 2023, eight virtual webinars will help public health workers navigate concerns exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Topics will include changes in Missouri regulations, food insecurity, vaccine hesitancy, outreach to hard-to-reach populations, menstrual hygiene, and others.

In our first webinar, Fred Rottnek, MD, MAHCM, will discuss:

how COVID-19 and the opioid overdose epidemic exacerbated existing systemic disparities in health
actions and innovations taken by healthcare providers and community organizations
potential local and remote collaborations to provide substance use and behavioral health services
