In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, please join Dr. Damon Tweedy on Monday, January 18 at 6:30 PM as he presents Health Disparities and Race in the Time of COVID-19 on Waukesha Public Library’s YouTube channel. He will discuss the topics of race and medicine as they intersect at the center of our national discussion during this historic pandemic.

Dr. Tweedy is a graduate of Duke University School of Medicine and Yale Law School.
