PBS39 presents Community Conversation, a series of forums that address today's issues impacting communities in the Greater Lehigh Valley and beyond.
Join us for our next Community Conversation at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 15. Correspondent Genesis Ortega will host this discussion focused on Vaccines and Communities of Color.
COVID-19 has affected communities of color at disproportionate rates. We will examine why this is happening and what's being done to address disparities in health care access. Watch live on PBS39, online or on our PBS39 and 91.3 WLVR Facebook pages.
