On February 18, 2021 the BIG Parklawn Chapter and BIG CDC/ATSDR Chapter partnered together for a Joint Black History Month Program.  The Guest Speaker was Dr. Wanda Barfield, the CDC Deputy Incident Manager for the Community Interventions and Critical Populations.  In the virtual event, Dr. Barfield discussed the importance of taking the Covid-19 vaccine and addressed vaccine hesitancy in the black community.  We had many questions and concerns addressed and had over 120+ in virtual attendance.  We are so thankful for our CDC counterparts and look forward to future collaborations in the future.
