Swope Health Presents The History of Vaccination and Inequity Among Communities of Color

The video of the first in our  special two-part noon virtual lecture series focusing on the importance of vaccination for the KC community is now available.

The first lecture originally was presented Feb. 18, on “The History of Vaccination and Inequity Among Communities of Color” featuring Jason Glenn, PhD, assistant professor in the department of history and medicine at the University of Kansas.

A graduate of Stanford University and Harvard University, Dr. Glenn’s research makes the history of medicine directly applicable to resolving local inequities of health and well-being. His areas of specialty include the history of drug policy in the U.S., the ethics and history of human subject research, health inequities research, and the social and structural determinants of health.

Watch the video to learn the history of vaccination and how we can shape our own future in the midst of this global pandemic.
