Getting the Vaccine to the communities that need it most
The Diverse Elders Coalition, in partnership with the National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA), is hosting a 2-part webinar series to inform diverse communities about COVID-19 and to highlight the realities of older adults living through the pandemic.

Are you an older adult or their caregiver, someone who works with the community, or someone interested in learning about ways to overcome barriers to access vaccines or information for your community? We want to hear from you about your experiences, and you’ll be welcome to share through polling, chat, or over the phone during this session. This webinar will also explore how health inequities have affected vaccine information, distribution and access in various communities. The webinar will include resources to help older adults, caregivers, and others obtain vaccine access and information.

Confirmed speakers include:
• Denny Chan, Directing Attorney, Equity Advocacy from Justice in Aging
• Dr. Pamela Monoghan-Geernaert, Ph.D. Professor at Northern State University
• Dr. Yanira Cruz, MPH, DrPH, CEO of NHCOA
• Frances Huynh, National Project Coordinator at the NAPCA

By attending this webinar, you will:
- Gain an understanding of the existing health inequities and experiences of diverse older adults living through the COVID-19 pandemic
- Learn from experts about What We Know Now about COVID-19 and vaccine access in diverse communities
- Receive accurate vaccine information for diverse communities

The Diverse Elders Coalition is a national organization made up of six-member organizations, representing older adults from communities of color, American Indian and Alaska Native, and LGBT communities.
