November 22, 2021 –
Dear Public Health Community,
On behalf of the White House COVID-19 Response Team, I am pleased to invite you to a virtual Public Health Community Appreciation Town Hall. The event is on Monday, November 22, from 12:00 – 1:00 PM ET.
Federal, state, and local public health professionals have been leaders in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic since it first reached the U.S., ensuring their communities had access to accurate information about the pandemic and critical public health interventions and resources. They have ensured widespread access to testing, vaccines, contact tracing, and monoclonal antibodies, launched far-reaching public education campaigns, and developed strategies to make and keep our schools safe. Public health professionals have been asked to coordinate and participate in every step of their state or local pandemic responses. In doing so, they have made enormous personal sacrifices and epitomized public service.
This Thanksgiving season we express our sincere gratitude to the entire public health community. The White House COVID-19 Response Team, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, and CDC Director Rochelle Walensky will share their reflections, as well as public health professionals from a variety of fields on the accomplishments of the public health community. Viewers will also hear from state and local health officials on the major investments being made to improve public health infrastructure for the future.
Please use the link below on the day of the event to tune in. We look forward to seeing you there.
Dr. Bechara Choucair; National Vaccinations Coordinator, White House COVID-19 Response Team
