This site was created by Diana Grigsby-Toussaint, a social epidemiologist at the Brown University School of Public Health. It brings together colleagues from sociology - Antwan Jones (George Washington University), health geography - Imelda Moise (University of Miami) and education - Sarai Coba-Rodriguez (University of Illinois-Chicago) to examine the social impact of COVID-19.
Madeline Noh, a Brown University undergraduate double majoring in public health and anthropology, is the site manager.
