Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy Through Community Engagement

Apr 16, 2021  01:00 PM  EST | Past Webinars |

This webinar discusses meaningful forms of community engagement to build confidence in the COVID vaccines. We heard from Deborah Washington, PhD, RN, Director of Diversity for Nursing & Patient Care Services at Massachusetts General Hospital since 1995, and John Nguyen-Yap, MSW, Associate Director of Health Equity at the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO). Our expert panel shared on-the-ground initiatives in BIPOC communities, including services that promote culturally competent care and successful Public Service Announcements. We also explored strategies to improve access to vaccine education and distribution among Asian American (AA), Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) communities.
