Faculty experts at Yale – including social scientists Alan Gerber, Greg Huber, and Josh Kalla – were members of a team partnering with Made to Save, a national campaign working to increase vaccinations in communities of color, to develop a new training video that helps doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals talk more effectively with patients about the COVID-19 vaccine.
