Over the past month our world, country, state, city along with our daily personal and professional lives have been disrupted due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. It is only natural for fear, and anxiety of the unknown to set in. In particularly we have seen the recent data on the increased number of positive cases in Wisconsin and the rise in deaths in the African American community in Milwaukee.
While this indeed is concerning, we want to ensure that we receive an understanding of COVID-19 and its impact in our community and hear from our expert public health official along with healthcare professionals who are working on the front lines in addressing this public health crisis to gain insight, education, resources around messaging, and next steps.
