Watch the conversation:

Join NJPAC for a conversation with medical experts examining the history of racial discrimination in health care, and how the shadow of medical apartheid will impact the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.

From the Tuskegee experiments of the 20th century to the multiple barriers to appropriate care Black people still encounter today, this panel will discuss the origins of the deep mistrust of the medical establishment felt by many in communities of color, and how that lack of trust might be mitigated in order to equitably distribute the COVID-19 vaccine.

Be a part of this insightful talk at 7PM on Monday, April 5, which will include a greeting from Mayor Ras Baraka, and will be moderated by Dr. Denise Anderson, founder and CEO of Denise Anderson & Associates, an independent public health and health care consultancy business, the Executive Director of the New Jersey Department of Health’s  Maternal Care Quality Collaborative, and Principal of the COVID Rapid Mobile Response Team at the New Jersey Department of Health.
