Emory University launches national dashboard to help visualize and target COVID-19 disparities
The impact of COVID-19 has not been evenly distributed across the country. Some communities—particularly those with a large minority population—suffer high infection rates, hospitalizations, and deaths. To reveal the relationships between underlying social determinants, health conditions, and health outcomes, researchers at Emory University have developed the COVID-19 Health Equity Dashboard.
“We see this as an evolving resource for a variety of audiences, including policy makers, public health practitioners, researchers, and maybe even clinicians,” Emory research team leader, Shivani A. Patel, PhD, MPF explains.
