The Minority Health Institute and UCLA BRITE Center for Science, Research and Policy invite you to attend a free, virtual town hall–with some of the nations’ premier COVID-19 experts and leaders of organizations, including historically Black institutions–to address facts, fears and myths pertaining to COVID-19 vaccination as we fight to protect and save Black lives.
This event was organized in partnership with Black doctors and scientists in the UCLA Health system, and co-chaired by Richard Allen Williams, MD, FACC, FAHA, FACP, Founder and President of the Minority Health Institute and Vickie M. Mays, PhD, MSPH. Dr. Mays is Director of the UCLA BRITE Center for Science, Research, and Policy; UCLA Distinguished Professor in the Department of Psychology; Distinguished Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management in the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health; and also Special Advisor to the Chancellor on Black Life.
We asked Dr. Mays about organizing this town hall, and she provided the following answers.
