Overcoming Vaccine Hesitancy In Black And Brown Communities

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on the health inequities that plague our nation and the lack of access to quality care for Black and Brown populations. But, beyond health inequity remains a culture of mistrust between these marginalized populations and the scientific and healthcare communities that is negatively impacting uptake of the vaccine among Black and Brown populations.

With many states prioritizing Black and Brown populations for COVID-19 vaccines, how can the life sciences and healthcare industry do a better job disseminating factual information throughout these marginalized communities so they can trust in science and feel confident taking the vaccine as soon as they are able?

Join our next Town Hall as we discuss how we can achieve these goals by elevating the voices of diverse leaders in science, and better explaining the scientific evidence that demonstrates the safety and benefit of the vaccines for Black and Brown populations.

NOTE: MassBio makes every effort to accommodate our entire community at each of our events. Please let us know at least 3 days in advance of the event if you require special accommodations, such as captioning.
