About the Event
The current COVID-19 pandemic exposed pervasive health and welfare inequality in access to healthcare. Underserved communities (healthcare deserts) have predominately uninsured or minimally insured populations including non-English speakers and refugees. Modern history has numerous examples of well-intentioned but hurtful designs imposed on vulnerable populations. This webinar will share processes used to engage a vulnerable, underserved population of Tempe Arizona to create a healthcare facility responsive to its needs and aspirations.
