The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health is pleased to announce that it has awarded $260,000 to The University of Texas at Austin for the Austin State Hospital Archives Project.
Every day, we see ordinary people innovate approaches to getting more shots into more arms. What does it say to them that there are health care workers who would sooner quit than get vaccinated?
The Hogg Foundation has awarded $3.75 million in grants to five organizations for the second phase of the Well-being in Rural Communities initiative.
The goal of the Fund is to reduce inequities in the uptake of vaccines by supporting efforts across Texas to address vaccine equity and barriers to access.
Although the term “vaccine hesitancy” has gained momentum in recent months, it fails to capture the systemic nature of the greater problem of vaccine access. We should rephrase it to “vaccine equity.”
These grants will positively impact well-being, improving academic achievement, and providing relief from COVID-19 for students of color and their families.
