Join us at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, September 22 for the third in a five-part city hall series on COVID-19 and our daily lives as we approach 2022. The next show will focus on politics and its effects on the coronavirus.
Our COVID-19 Town Hall series, presented by AARP of Alabama, focuses on the virus, the vaccine, and their effects on different aspects of our lives and the condition. Each Wednesday, host Ivana Hrynkiw will pose questions to readers at a panel of experts on the weekly topic.
This week, listen to US Senator Tommy Tuberville, Governor Kay Ivey and Alabama House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels talk about their thoughts on vaccines, leading to a pandemic, how they get factual information and more.
Upcoming topics for the next two shows, following Wednesday’s episode, include Faith and Grief. A previous town hall focused on medical matters, and featured Dr. Scott Harris, Alabama State Health Officer, and Dr. Michael Saag, UAB Infectious Disease Expert.
In addition to the expert panel, viewers watching the live show have the option to ask health questions about COVID-19 that a UAB Medicine healthcare professional responds to directly in the comments section of our Facebook Live broadcast. Live commentary experience is just one way AL.com strives to bring you the factual information of the experts directly.
You can watch the first show here, which included Dr Karen Landers, Deputy State Health Officer, Dr Amin Gilani, Child Psychiatrist, Mental Health Services Coordinator for Middle Schools Camille Underwood and Dr Claudette Poole, Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist at the UAB.
