“Just the Facts:  You Decide”

The Covid Vaccine and the African American Community

African Americans have a long history of skepticism and mistrust of the medical and health care industry.  From the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, The John Hopkins medical invasion of Henrietta Lacks to the recent Coronavirsus Epidemic, African Americans have become increasingly more concerned with trusting the US Medical Industry in its entirety.

As Advocates in the area of healthcare reform and equity for multicultural communities, MACC has assembled a national panel of African American doctors for this urgent conversation.  The January MACC Cultural Conversation will focus on the growing concern and resistance within the African American community to the vaccine.
