What role has God and/or church played in coping with Anti-Asian hate and COVID among Filipina nurses who possess a faith commitment and worked on the front lines of the pandemic? Anti-Asian spiked 145% in 2020, during the height of the pandemic. Concomitantly, nearly 1/3rd of the COVID deaths were Filipina nurses. Dr. Manalang will explore the vital role of God and/or church among Filipino-American nurses who possess a faith commitment, in coping with the demands and grief of the pandemic; specifically, in her hometown of Virginia Beach/Hampton Roads, Virginia, where one of the largest Filipino-American communities in the Southeast resides.
