What’s Love Got to Do With It?

December 2, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

“What’s Love Got to Do With It? Protecting Our Families from the Threat of Influenza” is presented by your very own National Minority Quality Forum and Center for Sustainable Health Care Quality and Equity.

Influenza rates and hospitalizations are rising at an alarming pace, even while vaccination rates are lagging. In the face of a tripledemic, people of color in the community–especially our grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters, and aunts–play a critical role in protecting the health of our families, neighbors, and communities.

On the eve of National Influenza Immunization Week, NMQF is hosting a conversation that will:

  • illuminate the threat flu poses, in the context of other respiratory infectious diseases as well as chronic diseases that put people at greater risk;
  • reveal the concerns and strategies that African American populations and especially women bring to influenza vaccination;
  • provide a view from the Black Church on meeting the flu challenge; and
  • see the launch of a new NMQF program spotlighting the stories of people of color.

Please join us and share your story concerning flu vaccination equity.
