Giselle Corbie-Smith, MD, MSc, appeared with other panelists on “On the Record” this past Saturday, March 13th on WRAL.
Giselle Corbie-Smith, MD, MSc, Director of the UNC Center for Health Equity Research, appeared on WRAL’s “On the Record” with anchor Lena Tillett to discuss vaccine hesitancy and “vaccine deliberation”, a term coined by Dr. Corbie-Smith. Dr. Corbie-Smith describes vaccine deliberation as a “slow yes” as black and brown communities experience a health system “that is yet to demonstrate that they value their lives as highly as the lives of other populations.”
The panel also included Dr. Robin Peace, physician and president of medical staff at Southeastern Health and Dr. Deepak Kumar, director of the Chambers Biomedical and Biotechnology Research Institute at North Carolina Central University.
