This webinar presents new research on the increased risk of exposure for immigrants to COVID-19 in the workplace. The participants highlight both the disproportionate representation of foreign-born workers among essential frontline workers as well as the compounding demographic, social, and economic factors which contribute to poor health outcomes for foreign-born workers who contract COVID-19. Please join us for this timely and important discussion about the disparities within the ongoing pandemic.
