Let’s Talk Vaccinations: A Conversation on COVID-19


Let’s Talk Vaccinations: A Conversation on COVID-19 will take place Wednesday, March 31, 7 p.m.

Milwaukee public health experts and community leaders answer questions about COVID-19 vaccines. The Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities in our country are being disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a public health necessity to deliver COVID-19 vaccinations as quickly as possible in a fair and equitable manner. BIPOC communities have a longstanding and legitimate distrust of our nation’s health policies in general and vaccines in particular.
To address these challenges, Milwaukee Rep is hosting a virtual panel discussion on COVID-19 vaccinations with local public health specialists and community leaders. This is an opportunity to learn more about the current state of the pandemic and the importance of getting vaccinated from experts in Milwaukee. Additionally, this live conversation includes time for virtual attendees to ask the panelists questions about COVID and vaccinations.
Panelists include:
Dr. Ivor Benjamin, Director and Professor, Cardiovascular Center, Medical College of Wisconsin
Andres Gonzalez, Vice President, Chief Diversity Officer, Froedtert Health
Paula Penebaker, Retired President and CEO, YWCA Southeast Wisconsin
Ericka Sinclair, Founder & CEO, Health Connections, Inc.
Moderator: Tammy Belton-Davis, Chief Diversity Officer, Milwaukee Rep
