Shots at the Shop is a program that has engaged 1,000 Black-owned barbershops and hair salons nationwide to act as health advocates, assisting their clients in making informed COVID-related decisions, dispelling misinformation, and hosting COVID-19 vaccination clinics in their shops. This webinar on Thursday, September 23, 3:00-4:30 pm ET, will provide an overview of the program, provide an update on its successes, and describe how local health departments can play an important role supporting enrolled shops. Note that shop enrollment has closed.
AmeriCorps, the federal agency for volunteering and national service, has launched Public Health AmeriCorps, a new partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to support the recruitment, training, and development of a new generation of public health leaders who will be ready to respond to the nation’s public health needs. This webinar has been extended for an additional 30-minutes to hear from AmeriCorps on this opportunity and allow time for our members to ask questions.
