Martinez spends summer as Faith in the Vaccine Ambassador

Pedro Martinez was one of nine Wartburg College students spending their summer educating others about the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine as a way to increase vaccination rates in their home communities.

The ambassador program was funded by the Interfaith Youth Core to address vaccine hesitancy concerns across the country. The Wartburg students are among about 2,000 students from 117 colleges nationwide participating in the program. Caryn Riswold, McCoy Family Distinguished Chair in Lutheran Heritage and Mission, is leading the group.
