Here are the facts: Black people represent just 13% of the country’s population but nearly 30% of total Coronavirus cases and 16% of total deaths. We are dying at higher rates than any other group in the country. But, despite these numbers, some of us are still hesitant to receive the vaccine -- a result of this country’s long history of medical racism and abuse of our communities.
So how do we make sure all of us stay protected against a virus that’s disproportionately killing us?
On Tuesday, February 23rd we’ll be joined by Board-certified Emergency Medicine physician, Dr. Uché Blackstock, CEO of Louisiana Public Health Institute, Shelina Davis, and writer and strategist, Kenyon Farrow, for a conversation to answer just that. We’re discussing all things Covid -- how we’ve gotten to this point, the real deal on the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine, and what we need to do to protect our communities. RSVP now to reserve your seat for this critically important discussion.
