Mountain Talk: Using Population Health Data to Inform Pandemic Policy with Fathima Wakeel

Tuesday, April 27 at 12:30pm to 1:00pm

Virtual Event

The Covid-19 pandemic has shed light on, and further deepened, existing health inequities at the community, state, and national levels. In the Lehigh Valley, Fathima Wakeel, associate professor in Lehigh’s College of Health, is leading an interdisciplinary team of Lehigh researchers in a study that seeks to determine the physical and mental health impacts of the pandemic on the Valley’s most vulnerable populations.

Wakeel hopes that, through data storytelling, the study will help to inform public policy and programs to improve lives, and prepare future responses to epidemics at the local and national levels. 

Join us live with Wakeel and learn more about the study, its expected impacts, and the challenges of conducting a study during a pandemic.
