A Mindful Discussion about the COVID-19 Vaccine


Hesitancy around getting the COVID-19 vaccine is understandable, especially if you’re pregnant or have been given reason to mistrust healthcare systems.

Join Dr. Rhonda Threet and Dr. Leslie Fields-Byrd , both are dedicated to serving the Black communities that raised them.

This virtual discussion grounded in mindfulness will unpack the facts about the COVID vaccine, who can receive it, and give tools to people looking to manage stress/anxiety as it relates to getting the vaccine.
