REFLECTION FOR ACTION: FAITH LEADERSHIP AMIDST COVID-19
Faith leaders (ordained and lay) play a key role in community cohesion, trust, and responsiveness. Yet, faith leaders are often an untapped resource in the drive for public health. As we move forward in addressing COVID-19 and as we continue to address systemic racism and its profound effect on health, we invite you to these two COVID-19 webinars presented by Dr. Susan Michaels-Strasser, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, Senior Director for Human Resources for Health (HRH) Development, Assistant Professor of Public Health, Division of Epidemiology, Columbia University. Dr. Strasser has over 25 years of experience in nursing and public health, and is the Principal Investigator for CDC- and HRSA-funded programs in the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Africa, South Sudan, Sierra Leone and Zambia. She has also served at senior management and training levels at various locations throughout Southern Africa.
In Session II, we will explore the role of emerging treatments, vaccines, and measures needed to ensure equitable access to an effective vaccine. We will explore best practices in ending pandemics and in ensuring communities coalesce to emerge healthier, stronger, and more united.
Recognizing that one purpose of these talks is to inform your leadership, each session will include ample time for Q&A and networking.
