Stay Well HBCU College Tour Aims to Keep College Students Healthy
The pop-up tour will equip HBCU students and alumni with important information and access to COVID-19 vaccines.
(Milwaukee, WI) – November 8, 2022 – After two years of canceled events because of COVID-19, homecomings are back in-person at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the country. To keep students and alumni healthy as they celebrate, the Stay Well HBCU Campus Tour, hosted by the We Can Do This campaign, will visit campuses in multiple states offering health resources.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things on and across HBCU campuses since 2020,” said Kenneth Washington, who serves as the sports marketing coordinator for the tour. “Most HBCU campuses’ response to the pandemic and vaccinations have been second to none, and as a result, HBCU campuses, events and gatherings are starting to become a norm again. The Stay Well HBCU Campus Tour aims to amplify those efforts across the HBCU campuses and communities we touch.”
Each tour stop will include a vaccination drive, interactive experiences and other fun activities. Every stop will distribute HBCU prize packs, branded tailgate games and on-site information to inform the community of the benefits of the COVID-19 Vaccine. Vaccinations remain the most effective measure in preventing serious COVID-19 cases, as they decrease the risk of hospitalization and developing variants.

- Alabama State University in Montgomery, AL on Nov. 12
- Alcorn State University in Lorman, MS on Nov. 19
