I enjoyed taking part in the virtual Town Hall Meeting titled “Help Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus COVID-19.” The hour-long session, held on August 24, 2020, was convened by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition/Peachtree Street Project. Participants included the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sr., president and founder, Rainbow PUSH Coalition; Leon McDougle (pictured, right), president, National Medical Association, and associate dean for Diversity and Inclusion, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus; and Debra Furr-Holden, associate dean for Public Health Integration, Michigan State University, Flint. The Rainbow Coalition is a multi-racial, multi-issue organization with offices throughout the U.S. The Atlanta-based Peachtree Street Project is an office of the Rainbow Coalition and conducts research and education activities to advance public understanding of equal opportunity in the southeastern U.S.
