Amid hesitancy among racial and ethnic groups about vaccine safety, medical schools and university hospitals turn to community partners, trusted minority leaders, and media platforms to explain the science behind the shots.
There's a moon rock in the White House. The trip across the Mall was the shortest journey for this space traveler who was collected during the Apollo 17 moon landing. A fascinating thread about this unassuming memento and what it means and symbolizes.
Good morning America! You all seem thrilled about Biden’s moon rock. Its symbolism, of the scientific and exploratory achievements that have been made – and will ideally soon be surpassed – certainly hits home.
What you might not know is that rock has an *epic* backstory. 1/x https://t.co/PACzEwzr7v
New Saturday morning reading: debut newsletter from @sandrogalea starts with his useful piscine metaphor on how the impact of a healthy environment differs from the impact of science and medicine on individuals’ health. Spoiler: we need both. @busphhttps://t.co/jk10A4URNY
We are eager to work with the administration, the new Congress, and leaders in #healthcare on this important plan. Learn more about how resources to combat #COVID19, facilitate economic recovery, and promote racial justice could impact impact #acadmed: https://t.co/0wayt9XT3C
The AAMC appreciates the new admin's commitment to containing the #COVID19 pandemic. The actions yesterday regarding issues like vaccine distribution, testing, #publichealth infrastructure, and addressing equity will help ensure that our country is on the right path to recovery. https://t.co/8FkkedNtvp
We don't have a second to waste when it comes to getting this virus under control. That's why today, I'll be signing executive actions to expand testing, administer vaccines, and safely reopen schools and businesses.
Equity is at the core of our COVID-19 response. That's why today, I signed an executive order to establish the COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force, protect those most at risk, and address racial and other disparities.
As @CDCgov Director, I promise to lead CDC through science, trust, transparency, and communication because this is the only way to have breakthroughs, deliver hope, and bring our nation back to full strength.
It sure does feel great to abandon the defense and come at #healthequity from a stance of support, (guarded) optimism, collaboration and innovation.
Let’s use this opportunity to broaden the base of support for #healthjustice beyond us usual folks. https://t.co/whfQmL3WVn
Good morning America. At long last, you get a National Strategy to tackle COVID today. This isn’t going to be easy, and it isn’t going to be fast — sadly many more losses ahead.
But we’re going to have a plan and we’re going to take this on full bore. https://t.co/TpTcyJn7Xh
On his first full day in office, President Biden plans to go on the offensive against the coronavirus with a national strategy. The highly coordinated response includes ramping up the production of test kits, vaccines and protective gear.
