* This webinar will be provided in English with simultaneous interpretation into Spanish *

COVID-19 treatment and care may vary across populations, particularly for those from underserved, immigrant, and migrant populations. Join us for our webinar, where we will uncover how to tailor care plans to best serve these populations. We will consider pre-existing health conditions such as chronic diseases, diabetes, cancer, obesity, asthma and tobacco use, occupational hazards, and other factors which may impact the health of underserved and migrant populations. We will also delve into strategies to improve patient-provider relationships to ensure the continuum of care across all ages and stages, from childhood to adulthood. Continuing education credit (CME and CNE) is available for participants of the live webinar.
