Abstract: THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC has laid bare many of the flaws in our country's health care system, including a weak public health infrastructure, the terrible and persistent health and health care disparities experienced by people of color and other marginalized populations, our inability to nimbly redistribute vital equipment and human resources, the consequences of chronic underfunding of long-term care, and the utter absence of a functional collaboration between policy makers and the health care delivery system.
