Episode 36 - In this episode, we talk about the ongoing battle with COVID-19 and vaccine hesitancy among Texas Hispanics. To get a better understanding of why Hispanics are hesitant to get the vaccine, TAMACC partnered with Texas State University to conduct a study. Two of the three professors that conducted the study are interviewed on this podcast, Jennifer Scharlach, Assistant Professor of Practice, Program Coordinator, Texas State University, and Dr. Vanessa de Macedo Higgins Joyce, Associate Professor, Texas State University.
While the COVID-19 vaccination gap between Texas Hispanics and non-Hispanics has decreased, vaccination hesitancy is still an issue within this vulnerable population in Texas. Almost half of the unvaccinated survey respondents indicated strong intentions against vaccinating, stemming from distrust and fear.

Episode 35 - In this episode, we will be talking with Edward Dennis a Mexican American illustrator and educator who wrote a bilingual book that he hopes will inspire a dialogue between parents and their children on immigration issues.
The U.S.-Mexico border has millions of crossings each year. The Boy from Mexico is just one of those millions of stories told through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Luz. This book is a great way to introduce the concept of immigration to children. Dennis believes the story will empower children to develop their own opinion on the topic. It is a story of hope, determination, and finding one’s place in the world, It's a story that needs to be told.
