NIH NCATS E-Newsletter: October 2020

NCATS LogoDirector's Message
NCATS commitment to community engagement contributes to reducing COVID-19 health disparities

The stark disparities in COVID-19 occurrence and death among racial and ethnic populations in our country have been one of the most painful aspects of the pandemic: African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, and American Indians/Alaska Natives are contracting and dying from COVID-19 at rates more than double those of white and Asian American populations. Although the reasons are complex and under intense study, the immediate imperative is to do everything we can to reduce these disparities in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19.
