WNBA players have evidenced leadership on so many issues this year, especially Covid-19 and the considerable challenge of vaccine hesitancy. I was so proud of my rockstar former student (and WNBA star), Elizabeth Williams, who led the charge on a strategic education session for WNBA players. I was pleased to join to discuss strategies to reduce hesitancy.
As I noted in the Washington Post piece: "...athletes in our country hold a very prized position and have a great opportunity to influence large segments of populations who are most at risk.”
“The WNBA can lead the charge,” Bennett continued, “and frankly, we need the men to follow."
