Pre-Summit Event on COVID-19 Vaccine Community Outreach

This Pre-Summit focuses on COVID-19 vaccination community education and outreach. National and state experts will share best and promising outreach practices and strategies to enhance public health. Trainings will be available to address the health literacy, digital literacy, and science literacy challenges that must be met to adequately inform the public. There will also be networking opportunities to share with and learn from others who are doing this important work across Wisconsin and the nation.

  • COVID-19 vaccination is about prevention. And in that respect, we failed—not just in preventing the pandemic, but in protecting Americans from its worst consequences: disease, death, and destitution. How could this have happened to the nation that was arguably in the best position to avert catastrophe? Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, a physician, public health servant, epidemiologist, and recent author of the book Healing Politics, offers a unique and medically-informed perspective on what went wrong and strategies for getting it right.

The agenda will cover:

  • Health literacy, digital literacy, and science literacy hands on training sessions.

  • Panel discussion on best practices and strategies

  • COVID vaccine show and tell – peer to peer networking opportunity
