Gov. Laura Kelly tours Wesley Medical Center, visits with Black Nurses Association in Wichita
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Governor Laura Kelly was in Wichita on Monday as part of her “Back to Work, Back to School” tour.
Last week, the tour was focused on economic development. This week’s focus is on health care. The governor visited Wesley Medical Center and got a chance to tour the children’s hospital. She also spoke to members of the Black Nurse’s Associations. Her big message was to call for Medicaid expansion and urge Kansans to get vaccinated.
“We need to keep ratcheting that up, we have to reach herd immunity if we really want to go back to work, back to school and back to normal,” said Gov. Kelly.
The Sedgwick County Health Department partnered with the Wichita Black Nurses Association and churches in underserved communities to help get more vaccines into the arms of minorities in Wichita.
