PrepareSTL and the Regional Response Team are partnering with medical providers from BJC and SSM to offer community-based vaccine education. The speakers will conduct presentations that center the physical and material well-being of African Americans and Communities of Color; healing from trauma; and informed choice regarding COVID19 vaccinations.
The Speakers Bureau members are volunteers. This opportunity is prioritized for community members and organizations who are or work with 18 to 30 years old, are active in a faith community, are foreign born and speak English, essential healthcare workers, have health conditions that make you vulnerable to COVID, live and/or work in North St. Louis City or County, or the Metro East, participate in grassroots/community groups, work in early childhood education, and/or public housing residents, individuals experiencing housing insecurity, or are unhoused.
Limited slots are also available for community members and organizations that do not meet the priority criteria.
Speakers are expected to share a 10 minute presentation with 20 minutes for questions and answers for a total of 30 minutes. Speakers will share information about the vaccine to help individuals make an informed choice. Speakers will not encourage individuals to take or not take the vaccine.
For organizations that are approved, a follow up email will be sent with availability of speaker. If you have any questions then please email Grace Kyung at firstname.lastname@example.org
