The importance of creating access to vaccination and rebuilding trust in Black communities

A critical component of moving towards racial equity in vaccination rates is amplifying the voices  of Black doctors. Dr. Nneka Sederstrom, Ph.D., MPH, MA, FCCP, FCCM, is the chief health equity officer at Hennepin Healthcare and a nationally recognized author and speaker on topics related to racism, racial disparities, bias, crisis, standards of care and treatment. She feels that it is not only important, but essential to have Black doctors as spokespeople when communicating information about COVID-19 in Black communities.
