The Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative (BARHII) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) invite state, local, tribal, and territorial public health professionals to attend our joint webinar, Equity in Public Health Vaccination Efforts during COVID-19, on Monday, May 17, 12:30-2:00 pm ET.
Throughout the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, communities have experienced varying levels of success in tackling various issues related to equity, including those that are related to health care, social distancing at both work and home, and more recently access to COVID-19 vaccinations. To address these concerns public health practitioners and their partners must consider exploring strategies and activities that incorporate new partners and ideas from unique voices within their organizations and communities.
During this webinar our panelists will share insights and lessons learned from their work addressing equitable COVID-19 vaccine planning and distribution within their communities. Panelists will touch upon topics including how to leverage COVID data to inform equitable vaccine distribution, effectively reach minority populations in rural settings, and utilize Chief Equity Officers to effectively respond to a community’s vaccination needs.
