Coles County, Poverty, and COVID-19 What We Know and Where We Are Going

Wednesday, 03 March, 2021 @ 06:00 PM - 07:30 PM | Cost:Free and Open to the public

For nearly a decade, Dr. Michael Gillespie has been monitoring the level of poverty and food insecurity in Coles County and the broader East Central Illinois region.  Compared to the region - and the state as a whole - Coles County has experienced an elevated level of poverty, food insecurity, and other risk factors.  With the onset and prolonged duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, Coles County also experienced an elevated incidence of both infections and deaths.  Join us for a presentation and discussion on the current data on poverty, as well as on how poverty and food insecurity are seen through the experience of this important public health crisis.
