Several months after COVID-19 spread across the globe, it became clear that Black and Latinx communities were being hit harder than other racial and ethnic groups. As researchers strive toward a COVID-19 vaccine, it will be crucial to ensure those vaccines are safe and effective for the communities most affected by this disease.
Join Department of Medicine infectious disease experts Drs. Angela Branche, Ann Falsey, and Edward Walsh for a discussion about COVID-19 and the importance of Black and Latinx involvement in vaccine trials. They’ll share latest news on COVID-19 vaccine developments, who is eligible to volunteer for vaccine clinical trials, and discuss the impact a COVID-19 vaccine will have on curbing the pandemic. Q&A session included. Register in advance!
Sponsored by Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Theta Alpha Zeta Chapter and Phi Beta Sigma fraternities, and Theta Upsilon Sigma Chapter in partnership with the Department of Medicine.
