Vaccination from the Misinformation Virus hosted by UNC Wilmington
Dr. Sabrina Cherry is featured in a new PBS documentary entitled Vaccination from the Misinformation Virus, produced by Chris Schueler, an Emmy Award-winning producer. The documentary aims to help address vaccine concerns by explaining the history of vaccinations in addressing public health outbreaks; vaccination hesitancy; and why addressing vaccine misinformation is so critical to eliminating health disparities. Join us to hear from Dr. Cherry and Mr. Schueler about vaccine efficacy, as well as hesitancy, and how misinformation can spread almost as rampant as a virus.
Dr. Cherry has worked for nearly 20 years within the field of public health. Her professional experience started as a Peace Corps Volunteer in The Gambia, West Africa. Dr. Cherry's primary research interests are the intersection of health disparities and social justice, as well as qualitative research.
