Fall 2020 ScholarSip
Start Date: 12/7/2020Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 12/7/2020End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description
Learn how Drexel researchers systematically explored issues related to the outbreak of COVID-19 during the Libraries’ 2020/2021 ScholarSip event series.

Each (virtual) ScholarSip event will address the theme Responding to COVID-19 through Research and Scientific Problem Solving. Distinguished Drexel researchers will offer “food for thought” on COVID-19 research topics and how they have responded to the pandemic both through original research and through adapting existing procedures to address its effects on various communities.

This term, we are excited to welcome guest speaker Usama Bilal, PhD, MPH, MD, Assistant Professor in the Urban Health Collaborative and the Dornsife School of Public Health.

During his talk titled Inequities as a Cause and a Consequence of COVID-19, Professor Bilal will discuss his research into how COVID-19 has amplified societal inequities. Using evidence from studies he and his team have conducted domestically (in Chicago, Philadelphia, and New York City) and globally (in Spain and Chile), Dr. Bilal will demonstrate that the existing narratives on the egalitarian nature of COVID-19 are false and that existing social inequities pose a threat to COVID-19 control.
