Kiran Nabi is a third-year student at the University of Toronto Scarborough, pursuing a double major in Human Biology and Health Studies. Along with her peers, Omer, Ranie, and Waleed, they were granted the UofT COVID-19 Student Engagement Award to conduct a COVID-19 research study. The project titled Racial Equity in the Fight Against COVID-19 was a qualitative study that examined racial inequities in the Canadian context. The goal of the project was to demonstrate the importance of collecting race-based data to ensure an equitable response to the current pandemic.
