Poster #157: Rosemary Fifita – COVID-19 Amongst Pacific Islanders in Utah

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Jacob Fitisemanu, Jr

I seek to the understand reasons why Pacific Island (PI) Communities in Utah have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and to examine the  health disparities surrounding these issues.  Pacific Islander communities are overrepresented for COVID-19 infections and the results have been devastating. We have come to an environment which has proven unfriendly and unwilling to help a growing community of people seeking a better way of life and uncover these issues.
