    Diné Teachings and Public Health Students Informing Peers and Relatives about Vaccine Education (RAVE) Project & Interview with Parents about COVID-19 Vaccinations for Children

    Diné College students and hosts Timeka Watchman, Crystanna Begay, Wahleah Watson, and Mariah Lee discuss their work in the PUH 299 Special Topics in Public Health course that was part of a research project titled Diné Teachings and Public Health Students Informing Peers and Relatives about Vaccine Education (RAVE).
