On Wednesday, The People’s Baptist Church, in partnership with the Faith Health Alliance, an initiative of National Minority Quality Forum’s Center for Sustainable Health Care and Equity, will host a hybrid town hall (both in-person and virtual) with faith, local and healthcare leaders to discuss issues related to flu immunization and mental health.
Rev. Eric J. Goode, a member of the Faith Health Alliance, said this effort to increase awareness of the benefits of influenza vaccination in Philadelphia is vital during these unprecedented times.
This program is supported by funding from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. NMQF’s SHC vaccine initiatives also receive support from Sanofi Pasteur.
