Dear Friends and Neighbors,
I’ve been floating all week, and I want to tell you why. Last Thursday, I got confirmation from my friend at the African American Health Network, Dr. Eva Vivian, that her group’s application for Wisconsin’s COVID-19 Community Outreach Grant was accepted.
Why was this so exciting to me? Because the Goodman Center will be one of the sites of the AAHN’s community-based COVID-19 education program for African Americans and other people who have limited access to or are hesitant about being vaccinated.
Everyone at Goodman has seen first-hand the impact this pandemic has had on our community, particularly our Black neighbors. The vaccine offers so much hope, and I’m passionate about getting education and vaccine access to as many people in our community as possible. So naturally, this partnership with AAHN couldn’t be more perfect.
We’re in the early stages of planning the logistics of these education and vaccine clinics, so keep an eye on our Facebook page and website, as we’ll be sharing updates there as the program develops.
I got my first dose of the vaccine two weeks ago and get my second dose next week, and I can’t tell you the relief I feel knowing I’m that much closer to being able to safely visit my grandbabies. I’m so excited that the Goodman Center will soon be playing a role in providing some of that relief to members of our community.
