The collaboration between MHHDRC and Tulane University’s A Studio in the Woods focuses on COVID-19 health disparities with the first scholar-in-residence being Dr. Sacoby Wilson, an associate professor of applied environmental health at the Prevention Research Center at the University of Maryland, College Park.
