Covid-19

As the Office of Community Health, we recognize that in times of crisis our systemically marginalized patients are likely to become even more marginalized. We have already seen the disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 on Black communities, communities of color, and other systemically marginalized communities within and beyond Wisconsin due to social determinants of health. Being prepared to understand and support our communities outside our hospital and clinic walls continues to be critical to those of us working within these spaces. We have compiled this list of material and educational resources to support our community members and care providers during this time.

If you manage a COVID-19 public health resource webpage and want to add your site to our resource list, please email communityhealth@fammed.wisc.edu to submit your page for consideration.

  • Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association – “As mentioned in our previous APAMSA national statement, we are concerned about the heightened tensions and fear that have unfortunately stemmed from this outbreak. If you have witnessed or experienced acts of xenophobia-driven violence, we also encourage you to aid in hate crime response and prevention by sharing your story at StandAgainstHatred.org. We remain hopeful that together, we can overcome these adversities and work towards improving the health of the APIA community through this difficult time”
