NYACP Medical Students Create COVID Resources for Physicians and Patients

COVID Vaccine Message YouTube LinkNYACP District President, Aaron Glatt, MD, MACP, MD, MACP, FIDSA, FSHEA emphasizes that “we need more young people advocating vaccinations.”  The members of the medical student committee understand the importance of using their voices and decided to act by encouraging the public to choose the COVID vaccine.  A team of students created a group of videos in multiple languages for you to share on social media, include in your newsletters, embed on your website, and play in waiting rooms.  Mini 5-minute podcasts that answer questions on the topics of masks, vaccines, testing and COVID in children are available for you to listen and share. 

Did you use these resources?  We would love to know your thoughts.
