COVID-19 Public Service Announcement

Jul 15, 2021 | Blog

NHBP Tribal Member Robyn Burlingham was appointed by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer to the Protect Michigan Commission. As part of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the commission will help raise awareness of the safety and effectiveness of the approved COVID-19 vaccines, educate the people of Michigan, and help protect the health and safety of all Michigan residents.

While educating Michiganders on the safety of the FDA-approved vaccines, the commission is working to break down some of these barriers between the non-white population and the federal government. Burlingham continues to play a role on this commission by sharing her thoughts on the vaccine.
