Come join LWV-Wake as it hosts William Munn, Ph.D., as he presents on: “Health Inequities in North Carolina: A Story”. This Members Only event, sponsored by the LWVW Healthcare Committee, will look at the deep inequities in our state’s healthcare.

Dr. Munn will also discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the North Carolina General Assembly’s refusal to expand Medicaid has impacted these inequities.
