"Dairy manufacturers and processors have gone to great lengths to protect their staff from the threat of COVID-19 in the workplace,” said John Umhoefer, WCMA Executive Director.  “That effort continues now with clear communication about the availability, safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.”

WCMA is pleased to present featured speaker Jeff Christensen, Director of Communications at M3 Insurance, as part of this webinar.  Join as Jeff walks through the fundamentals business leaders should consider and apply while talking about organizational decisions regarding COVID-19 vaccines while communicating with employees about their organization’s COVID-19 vaccination plan.

Wisconsin’s Green County Public Health Director RoAnn Warden, RN, BSN, is set to share her knowledge regarding the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, as well as practical experiences from those who have already received full doses.
