Healthcare Foundation Webinars:

Health, Well-Being and What's Next

What do the citizens of Sonoma County need to be thinking about as Shelter in Place is lifted? In this May 8, 2020 conversation with medical experts and state leaders, we examine the new normal for our community and provide advice on how we can all move forward together.

Pulse on the Vaccine

As the vaccine rollout lurches unevenly forward in Sonoma County, the Healthcare Foundation wants to keep our community aware of the up-to-the-minute logistics on who, where, when, and how to get vaccinated, to explore vaccine hesitation, and how our collective effort is addressing health equity. Our purpose is to build vaccine confidence so that we may look towards reopening our businesses and returning to work, school, and more normal lives.

Kids and the Vaccine: Getting to Herd Immunity

Why is vaccinating kids important, and what is at risk? What are our best strategies for reaching kids and their parents? We discuss the reasons in this June 8, 2021 panel discussion.
