Brado’s team of behavioral science experts collaboratively uncovered pressing questions driving hesitancy around potential COVID-19 vaccines. These questions revealed implicit fears radiating beyond the personal, into intimate social groups and the political sphere, which will impact the potential success of a vaccine.
This 45-minute exclusive roundtable focused on the research findings. In making the implicit explicit, the BAU team also revealed opportunities for brands and companies to work with—and not against—vaccine hesitancy in this new age of COVID-19.
When: Thursday, October 29th, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CT
About Brado’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU)
Brado’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) is our team of in house behavioral science experts dedicated to discovering the deep motivators behind consumer behavior through an interdisciplinary approach. They apply behavioral science theory and principles in every step of the research to ensure a holistic understanding of the implicit and explicit variables that impact behavior allowing you to work with them and not against them.
Catrina Salama has a master’s in clinical psychology and leads the Behavioral Analysis Unit. She has significant experience in the hospital, academic and private setting.
