MACC Zooms In On: COVID in 2021: Equitable Vaccine Rollout, Pandemic Status, and Community Engagement
February 4th, 2021, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Join our dynamic panel of public health experts to discuss the current state of the COVID pandemic and what we can expect as vaccines begin distribution in our communities. We’ll dig into the serious equity questions arising around distribution - including who gets considered an “essential” worker. We’ll also discuss what role community based organizations can play in engaging our communities.
Our panel of public health experts:
Elizabeth Ebot, Vaccine Outreach Director, MN Department of Health
Gretchen Musicant, Commisioner at Minneapolis Health Department
Lynn Bahta, R.N., MPG, CPH, Immunization Clinical Consultant, Minnesota Department of Health,
Susan Palchick, Director of Public Health, Hennepin County
We’ll have time after our panel to breakout into small groups for conversation with your member colleagues about how they’re approaching and planning for this next phase of the pandemic.
