Lunch & Learn: Building Vaccine Trust

The January health topic will explore the building of vaccine trust. Specifically, we are hoping to discuss ways trust and trustworthiness during COVID-19 impacts vaccines and immunizations in general. In addition to discussions around vaccine hesitancy, a focus on the Community Vaccine Collaborative and how the Pittsburgh-based group are working to address community hesitancy, available resources, engagement opportunities, and also action steps for folks to take charge of their own health. The New Pittsburgh Courier will print this Take Charge of Your Health topic in their January 13th newspaper edition.

Presenters

Maya Ragavan, MD, MPH, MS, assistant professor of pediatrics in the Division of General Academic Pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh

Representation from the Pittsburgh Community Vaccine Collaborative will also be present at the Lunch and Learn. The Collaborative engages in conversations around trust building and vaccine recruitment and knowledge translation by leaning on the community health deputies who educate and discuss vaccination with their respective communities and can help establish vaccine awareness and participation.

The Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of Pittsburgh partners with the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh and UPMC and puts together the Take Charge of Your Health page in the New Pittsburgh Courier monthly. Our goal with the lunch and learn series is to lift up the community voice alongside the academics presenting their work in the space. We hope to create opportunities to co-create and co-learn around a health topic that is relevant.
