Spatial Inequalities in COVID-19 Outcomes in US Cities: Preliminary Results & Future Research Ideas
Start Date: 5/22/2020Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 5/22/2020End Time: 12:00 PM

Event Description
The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and the Urban Health Collaborative at Dornsife present Usama Bilal, PhD, MPH, MD, Assistant Professor at Dornsife.

In this talk, Bilal will discuss preliminary results exploring the emergence of spatial inequalities in COVID-19 testing and health outcomes in urban areas. Specifically, he will show results highlighting the existence and trends of disparities in testing in zip codes in Philadelphia, and the emergence and strengthening of disparities in disease incidence in zip codes of Philadelphia, New York City, Chicago, and other large U.S. cities. He will also discuss a new grant proposal idea to explore the role of social inequalities in aggravating the spread of the pandemic and the creation of health disparities and spatial inequalities in COVID-19 outcomes.

About Bilal:
His primary research interest is the macrosocial determinants of health, focusing on the role that city- and neighborhood-level dynamics have in generating disease, and the use of complexity methodologies to study the emergent properties of urban environments.
He has earned a PhD in Cardiovascular Epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, an MPH from the Universidad de Alcala in Spain, and MD from the Universidad de Oviedo in Spain.
