Health disparity and effects of COVID-19 on racial, ethnic minorities
A recent Mayo Clinic study looked at the disproportionate effects of COVID-19 on racial and ethnic minorities.

In this Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Shah explains the research findings and discusses how clinicians can help bring awareness to health disparities during the COVID-19 pandemic and other public health emergencies.
