The Mic Drop Club welcomes, Melary Kapapiro to show – a great friend and a rare Mental Health leader that is not afraid to challenge stereotypes in the pursuit of making positive changes to improve health and wellbeing.
Melary breaks down the core issues behind covid vaccination hesitancy in Black and ethnic minorities in the UK. Offering areas for government and local community focus with practical solutions explored e.g. gamification in health.
- The role of community leaders to debunk the vaccination myths.
- How to provide a safe place for people to express their concern for vaccinations whilst respecting cultural beliefs and norms.
- Winning the hearts and minds of citizens to drive the vaccination programme.
It’s not shocking to hear that ‘Control’ is a major issue concerning the vaccination programme, this view was shared by Novak Djokovic resulted in deportation from Australia. We even have time to recap the Naomi Osaka 2021 saga – when she was slated by the press for not providing a post-match interview to protect her mental health.
This remains one of my favourite conversations in 2021. I thought this great discussion was lost, however, through a stroke of luck and good fortune, I found it on an old SSD drive.
Thank you Melary for sharing a great conversation
