Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) Response to COVID-19: Dispelling Myths and Rumors, Challenges, and Lessons Learned
The MEC Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) invites the College Community to an important webinar titled: “NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) Public Health Response to COVID-19: Dispelling Myths and Rumors, Challenges, and Lessons Learned.”
Many people get their health-related information from social media, news programs, or word-of-mouth. When this information concerns COVID-19 vaccines, the reliability of this information can make the difference between life and death. The critical importance of making an informed decision on whether or not to get a COVID-19 vaccine and subsequent booster shot(s) is apparent, especially when we look at the number and health disparity of those people who developed serious complications or died of COVID-19 infections.
Date: Monday, May 2, 2022
Time: 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM via ZOOM
Presenter: Dr. Julian L. Watkins, MD
