Join AARP Colorado for a vital discussion about the disparities of the state's Hispanic population in contracting COVID-19 and what we can do to keep our Latino communities safe with the help of local resources.
Currently, "Hispanic communities are disproportionately affected by the pandemic.

This is likely a consequence of the large percentage of the community working in service and other essential jobs such as meatpacking and agriculture," according to the Colorado and Denver Departments of Public Health & Environment .
Sponsored by AARP and presented by PBS-12, AARP Colorado will discuss the impact of the Coronavirus on the state’s Hispanic population with the following experts:
