United in Health / Unidos en Salud

BIDS Faculty Affiliate Maya Petersen is part of this collaboration of healthcare providers, infectious disease experts, community mobilizers, and people who are helping vulnerable populations through COVID-19.

COVID-19 disproportionately effects communities of color across the nation. In San Francisco, LatinX members make up roughly 50% of COVID-19 cases, despite being 15% of the population due to longstanding health inequities. Low-barrier access to testing and care are instrumental in curbing the pandemic.

BIDS-BCHSI Research Xchange Forum

The BIDS-BCHSI Research Xchange Forum will be launched in October 2020 as an open discussion platform for the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and research projects at the intersection of healthcare and data science, enabling participants to support the development, and research of our members, and to foster new collaborations.
