Event Description

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, communities of color particularly the Latino community, have been disproportionately affected by the virus. That’s meant more cases, more lives lost, less access to testing, less ability to stay home due to essential and front-line jobs, and greater stress on home and family life within multi-generational households. 

With vaccinations already underway in Chicago, join WBEZ weekend anchor Araceli Gómez-Aldana and leading public health experts to help you get verified, fact-based information. Panelists include: Ngozi O. Ezike, MD, Director of Illinois Department of Public Health; Archana Chatterjee, MD, PhD, Dean, Rosalind Franklin University’s Chicago Medical School and member of an FDA panel that evaluated COVID-19 vaccines; and Juanita Mora, MD, Allergy and Immunology, Chicago Allergy Center and national spokeswoman for the American Lung Association. During this event we will answer your questions about the COVID-19 vaccines. This event will be held in English with live Spanish language translation.

This virtual event kicks off a four-part series of COVID Conversations that connect Chicagoans to resources to survive this pandemic winter. Each hourlong event will feature a WBEZ host in conversation with experts, answering questions submitted by the public. Join us and be sure to submit questions via our survey. We’ll get to as many as we can during the event, and may use your questions to drive our reporting on COVID-19.
