Disparities and COVID-19: A two-day virtual workshop, Data Science for Social Good

Tragically, the burdens of the COVID-19 pandemic often fall on the most vulnerable members of society. In this symposium, we will engage the broader Johns Hopkins community in a meaningful conversation on various aspects of disparities arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us for an interactive discussion on how data science approaches and methods contribute to better understand, address, and mitigate the disparate impact of COVID-19.

In addition to keynotes and short talks, the event will involve data science teams working on various aspects of the COVID-19 disparity problem. Scheduling the event over two days, separated by a week, will give these teams a chance to present their approach during the first day, continue their work over the course of a week, and report their preliminary results during the second day of the event.

The two-day event will feature:

  • Four keynotes
  • Short talks by COVID-19 thought leaders
  • Team lightning talks
  • Hackathon
