This event in the University of Minnesota Dean’s Lecture Series featured experts who assisted with the state of Minnesota’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. DeBruin co-led the Minnesota COVID Ethics Collaborative, a statewide advisory group that developed ethics guidance for the Minnesota Department of Health and the state’s health systems. In this webinar, Dr. DeBruin discussed ways in which that ethics guidance promoted equity during the pandemic, and identified critical areas for further work on equity moving forward.
