RSA Remote … Are Vaccines the Answer? Or Just Another Question?

RSA Remote … Are Vaccines the Answer? Or Just Another Question?

This panel convenes vaccine activists and scholars to discuss the historical, cultural, and therefore rhetorical considerations for understanding vaccine priorities and how they are communicated to various publics. In addition to unpacking the role rhetorical/communication scholarship plays in vaccination generally and for COVID-19  specifically, panelists will consider how we might use the current COVID-19 situation to connect more effectively to and work more effectively with local, state, regional, national and international communities to improve global health overall.
