Who We Are
We are a group of the nation’s top physicians and communications strategists who have joined forces to mount a public awareness campaign urging patients and communities, especially communities of color, to not hesitate, but vaccinate as early as possible.
Envisioned by Dr. Jacqueline Jones – a board-certified Ear, Nose and Throat Physician in private practice in Manhattan and Brooklyn, on the faculty of Weill Cornell Medical College, and one of the nation’s “Top Doctors” (see A Doctor’s Story) – when a number of her health care colleagues expressed hesitancy in getting vaccinated, she wrote an open letter to patients urging them to vaccinate. Castle Connolly, which researches and selects the definitive and trusted list of the nation’s top doctors, issued the letter with the endorsement of their 1200 Top Doctors.
Dr. Jones, wishing to make these top doctors’ orders go as viral as the disease they are fighting, reached out to her long-time patient and friend, Davia Temin, who runs a marketing and media strategy, crisis and reputation consultancy and coaching firm. Ms. Temin’s goal was to launch an awareness campaign in order to get the word out quickly. She donated the resources of her Temin and Company team – strategists Rachel Clarke, Trang Mar, Amy Cao, Suzanne Oaks Brownstein, and Maria Matveeva – as well as Creative Director Victor DeCastro and Brand Strategest/Writer Roger Chiocchi.
This is our Vaccinate4Love team – fueled by love, and Dr. Jackie Jones’ and Davia Temin’s vision.
Please join us and help get the word out!
