The United Progressive Party remains committed to using its platform to increase public confidence about vaccinations and will launch “Tackling COVID” a weekly 5-part series of public education forums.
In keeping with the Party’s ethos of public consultations, this national outreach initiative will aim to increase public engagement guided by trusted voices in the community, which will lead to greater public trust.
A panel of professionals in various fields including health care, mental health, education, labour relations, business and finance will share knowledge and information to help the public make more informed decisions, not just about their personal health, but the overall quality of life in their communities.
Panelists will participate in discussions that confront misinformation, fear and hesitancy with regard to vaccinations, while reinforcing prevention measures such as sanitizing, mask wearing and social distancing.
These weekly interactive virtual forums will be hosted on Tuesdays from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM and will be broadcast on Progressive Radio 107.3 FM and live streamed via the MYUPP Facebook Page.
The first episode which will be held on 21st September, will feature local, biological scientist, Radcliffe Robins and medical practitioner, Dr. Dwayne Thwaites.
The discussion will center on “COVID 19: Public Health and Your Protection” and there will be a Q & A session to address public concerns and information gaps.
The general public is invited to participate in this important series of virtual conversations that will address COVID-19 prevention and protection measures.
The panel of professionals will explore a range of topics, innovative strategies and best practices that have been used both regionally and globally, to address the impact of COVID-19 and the recovery process.
