In April 2020, the Tennessee Department of Health's Division of Health Disparities Elimination launched the Tennessee Health Disparities Advisory Group, formerly known as the Tennessee Health Disparities Task Force, to address the disproportionate number of individuals in minority and vulnerable communities contracting COVID-19. Members examined data, monitored trends, and generated responsive solutions during the pandemic.
The Health Disparities Advisory Group includes individuals from community and faith-based organizations, academia, health care providers, and public health officials. As membership increased, priorities were established to focus on chronic diseases, mental health, infectious diseases, and environmental justice.
Weekly meetings consist of various discussions, networking opportunities, and presentations.
