Kline publishes article on populations vulnerable to health inequity

Anthropology professor Nolan Kline has published an article in Health Equity, a scientific journal focused on health disparities among vulnerable populations. The piece, entitled “Rethinking COVID-19 Vulnerability: A Call for LGTBQ+ Im/migrant Health Equity in the United States During and After a Pandemic,” explores social and political vulnerabilities faced by immigrants, migrants, and LGBTQ+ populations.

The article posits that the burden the COVID-19 outbreak has put on the health-care system further exposes systemic health inequities among vulnerable populations. And now, Kline says, is a critical time to address the root causes of those inequities.
