Natural disasters and public health emergencies always take an increased toll on groups who are already marginalized

As governments, businesses, and individuals scramble to respond to the threat of a COVID-19 pandemic, those of us who work in the social sector rightly ask what we can do to effectively contribute.
In 2009, I was the medical director of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and worked with my colleagues to face similar challenges posed by the H1N1 virus outbreak. I learned from experience that responses during a time of crisis are only as good as the strength of preparedness, support systems, and relationships that existed before the crisis.
