Impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Navajo Nation and a story of Diné resilience – FREE webinar Wed, May 11, at 10am (sponsored by NNLM Region 3)
May 4, 2022
 

The Network of the National Library of Medicine Region 3, housed at the Gibson D. Lewis Library, would like to invite you to join us for the next session of our monthly webinar series, Health Bytes with Region 3.

This monthly 1 hour series focuses on topics of interest to clinicians, researchers, faculty, and information professionals.

The Navajo Nation is fraught with infrastructural inadequacies and health disparities that were a set-up for such spread and devastation at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The health inequities that exist on the Navajo Nation are plenty and posed many barriers to quick, safe and effective quarantining, isolation and recovery. However, throughout the pandemic, the Navajo Nation has kept its spirits up and worked together to overcome and move forward. Dr. Calderon will tell the Diné story of resilience through this pandemic.
