Episode 216 : Jasmine Marcelin On The Covid-19 Vaccine

Featured Guest: Jasmine Marcelin

  • Dec 24, 2020

“Healthcare & medicine have to be able to say & acknowledge “there are really bad things that have happened under our watch, but this is not one of them'”

Dr, Jasmine Marcelin is an Assistant Professor of Infectious Diseases at University of Nebraska Medical Center & Associate Program Director of UNMC Internal Medicine Residency Program. She comes back to Explore The Space Podcast for an essential discussion of the Covid19 vaccine on the day we both received our first injection. Dr. Marcelin describes how to both access and move through barriers people may have around it and critical insight into how to properly center and validate concerns held by BIPOC Americans related to the long history of systemic racism in medicine.
