Wilberforce University to Provide COVID-19 Vaccine to the Local Community
"Wilberforce University is pleased to partner with the Greene County Department of Public Health to provide access to the COVID-19 vaccine to the local community. This partnership reaffirms our historic commitment of service to our community, especially given the prevailing narrative regarding the lack of access to the COVID-19 vaccine for rural communities of color. With this partnership, we are also modeling the kind of civic responsibility and social engagement that we instill in and expect of Wilberforce University students." - Dr. Elfred Anthony Pinkard, 22nd president, Wilberforce University
