This is exactly the kind of message we need to share with our school communities, especially if you serve black and brown families. Credible, familiar messengers that provide important public health information, bust myths wide open and reflect the community.
Here is an explanation of the program described on the YouTube site:
THE CONVERSATION: Between Us, About Us kicks off with an open and honest conversation between W. Kamau Bell and Black doctors, nurses and researchers that gets to the heart of Black people’s questions about the COVID-19 vaccines. This new campaign from KFF’s Greater Than COVID and the Black Coalition Against COVID launches with 50 FAQs designed to dispel misinformation and provide accessible facts about the vaccines from Black health care workers. More content will be added as new information becomes available. YouTube is providing significant support for the campaign, including high visibility promotion across its platform.
The campaign is produced by KFF (Kaiser Family Foundation), a nonproﬁt organization focusing on national health issues (no affiliation with Kaiser Permanente), and presented by KFF’s Greater Than COVID public information initiative and the Black Coalition Against COVID (BCAC). Rhea Boyd, MD, MPH, a pediatrician and public health advocate, and Reed Tuckson, MD, Founding Member, BCAC, co-developed the series with KFF and BCAC.
Jacob Kornbluth Productions worked with KFF and BCAC to create the videos. California Health Care Foundation, The Commonwealth Fund and Sierra Health Foundation have generously contributed funding to the production and are supporting distribution.
