P07. [AWARD WINNER] Ability to Access Health Care Among Community College Students During COVID-19


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many aspects of young people's lives, including health care. This study explored whether COVID-19 has impeded community college students' ability to access to health care. We analyzed survey data (N=1,251) from an ongoing study at 23 community colleges in California and Texas. We used multivariate logistic regression analyses to compare the impact of COVID-19 on health care access by students' race/ethnicity, socioeconomic characteristics, health insurance, job loss, and broadband access.
