On June 29, 2023, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that race-conscious consideration for college admission is unconstitutional. We will discuss the consequences of this ruling on the delivery of equitable care, health system readiness to combat current and emerging pandemics, and the implications of this ruling on the infectious disease workforce.

Co-sponsored with the Division of Infectious Diseases at Penn Medicine.
