  • Person wearing two masks.

    Your double mask questions from the All-College meeting answered

    Here's the answer for the questions about double masking from yesterday's All-College Meeting.

    According to new guidance from the CDC, yes you should double mask to provide increased protection for COVID 19. The guidance is based on a lab study, published in MMWR, which used masked and unmasked dummies that released aerosol particles from a mouthpiece when they were simulated to cough or breathe. The study found that wearing a multilayered cloth mask over a surgical mask or wearing a tightly fitted surgical mask substantially increased the level of protection for both the mask wearer and others.

    When double masking, the CDC recommends wearing a snug cloth mask over a surgical mask. Surgical masks provide better filtration, but tend to fit loosely. Cloth masks close any gaps and provide another layer of protection. Surgical masks are sometimes called medical masks or medical procedure masks.

    Tuesday Topic: CNHP Reads The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

    • April 20
    • 4–5:00 p.m.

    Join students, faculty, and staff of CNHP to discuss this powerful, important, and deeply engaging bestselling novel The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This event will be a group discuss as part of the “Tuesday Topics” series, facilitated by students, faculty, and staff at CNHP.

    Book description: Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil's name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does--or does not--say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

    Community Wellness HUB hosting Cancer & The African American Community: Confronting Disparities & Finding Solutions

    • Thursday, April 15th
    • 5 - 6:00 p.m.
    • Via Zoom

    The path to cancer care is rarely straight-forward. But for Black men and women in particular, it is cluttered with obstacles arising from policies, procedures, and practices that contribute to inequalities in care – or that completely block access to critical services. Black Americans constitute nearly 42% of the population of Philadelphia, and a large proportion of this population experiences inequalities in health care.

    Health disparities cannot be eliminated overnight, but through consistent collaborations with our community and clinical partners, we can advance towards better health for all Black Americans.

    Join us as we explore and discuss the state of cancer among the Black community, with special guests:

    • Annette B. Gadegbeku, MD, associate professor and assistant dean of Community Health at Drexel University College of Medicine
    • Katie Livengood, MPH, assistant director, Drexel Urban Health Collaborative
