Reckoning with the Past and Building Trust: A Conversation about the COVID Vaccine and Black Communities
During a recent community town hall hosted by Rutgers University–Camden, nationally respected doctor and scholar Dr. George C. Hill – a graduate of Camden High School and of Rutgers–Camden – led a discussion about how the history of scientific mistreatment of Black people by the medical community is impacting desires to receive the COVID-19 vaccinations.
He was joined by Dr. Jubril Oyeyemi, medical director of care management initiatives at the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers, and Dr. Tyshaneka Saffold, a clinical instructor of nursing at Rutgers University–Camden. Together, these medical experts addressed community concerns about the COVID vaccine.
