2020 Election Series: Policy, Movements and the Social Determinants of Health in the 2020 Election 

Join Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy for their 2020 Election Series panel on “Policy, Movements, and The Social Determinants of Health in the 2020 Election.” This panel will explore how decisions by local, state and federal policymakers have impacted communities and underrepresented populations during the 2020 election cycle. It will cover topics including, but not limited to, the United States’ pandemic response, health care accessibility, recent protest movements and changing voter attitudes. The panel will also discuss the potential impacts of various election outcomes on health care disparities in the United States and what policies could help with recovery from the pandemic and the economic downturn.
