UMass nurses show a commitment to treating and eradicating COVID-19

COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic
Campus Center

MON 1:41 PM

Ann Becker ’17 shows off her vaccinated arm—and sense of joyful relief—at the campus COVID-19 vaccination clinic. She was inoculated by one of her own nursing students.

Becker is a clinical associate professor of nursing, public health director for University Health Services, and co-director of the UMass Public Health Promotion Center (PHPC). She works with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and UMass leadership to continue planning the university’s role as a regional COVID-19 vaccine clinic. “It is very important to me to walk the talk of public health, and getting vaccinated by my students as others watch is one way they get to witness my commitment to the COVID-19 vaccine,” she says.
