Dr. Ngozi Onuoha is a Nigerian-born, Philadelphia-based primary care physician who has been educated in Nigeria, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In her “Mitigating Health Hesitancy” presentation, Dr. Onuoha notes that people are hesitant to get COVID-19 vaccinations due to factors like lack of knowledge, mistrust of systems, and fear. To alleviate this, Dr. Onuoha educated communities on the benefits, safety, and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine, with the intention to reduce hesitancy and campaign for people to vaccinate. "
