Trust Issues Pertaining to the COVID-19 Vaccination
Without a doubt, our world and sense of normalcy has drastically changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people of African descent hold mistrust of the government and medical profession due to America’s infamous history of involuntary medical experimentation, medical apartheid, and ongoing systemic health inequities.  The Denver-Rocky Mountain Association of Black Psychologists invites you to engage in a critical community discussion on trust issues pertaining to the COVID-19 vaccination. Expert panelists will provide differing perspectives and information to encourage participants to conduct their own due diligence in reaching their vaccination decision.
