Calls for diversity, equity, and inclusion have grown louder during the pandemic.Health inequalities manifesting in varying infection and mortality rates clearly show the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on the Black, Latino, Asian, and Indigenous communities. This has heightened the need for more equitable access to healthcare and clinical trials.

This session, which includes patient and physician perspectives, will focus attention on how to overcome the barriers to participation.
