Rerun: COVID-19 & Black Women – Dr. Susan Moore’s Story

In this rerun episode we discuss Dr. Susan Moore’s tragic battle with COVID-19. She was a Black doctor who took to social media to expose a hospital’s racially biased treatment she received as a patient. And we highlight Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, an immunologist who was one of the scientists who helped develop the Moderna vaccine for COVID-19.

Follow Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett on Instagram and Twitter for COVID-19 updates and to see the amazing work she is doing in the field of immunology.
