Dr. Chris Pernell, a New Jersey public health physician, joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss why she chose to "turn devastation into hope and victory" by participating in the Moderna vaccine trial. Dr. Pernell says "My father was a research scientist, and unfortunately this pandemic took his life away, but it did not take away his fight or spirit or legacy because I look to live that forward. As black & brown communities have been decimated by this pandemic, I saw a way to be a part of the solution. I saw a way to demonstrate accountability and to say how do we help to beat back this pandemic and to create a new narrative, a more powerful narrative informed by public health." Aired on 12/15/2020.
