    NIVDP Partners Lend Their Voice to Promote Flu Vaccination

    In this issue, we recognize NIVDP partners who are lending their voices and leadership to promote flu vaccination within the African and African American communities. These trusted messengers include:

    • LaTosha Brown, Senior Advisor of the Black Women’s Roundtable, a program of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP), who used social media to promote flu vaccination during the 50th Anniversary celebration of the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March to her followers in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana and Georgia;

    • Rhonda Adams-Rocha, Community Nurse Consultant at Grace Church of All Nations, in Boston, Massachusetts, whose outreach efforts in her Dorchester neighborhood led to hundreds of people getting vaccinated against the flu during National Influenza Vaccination Week (NIVW);

    • Maurith Hughes, Health Ministry Leader of The Potter’s House Church in Denver, Colorado, who promoted flu vaccination by disseminating materials in multiple languages to congregation members; and

    • Mamadou Samba, Director of the District of Columbia Mayor’s Office on African Affairs, who joined the NIVDP because its health mission towards the community aligns with the need to increase flu vaccination coverage.
