  1. Skye this was a really fantastic presentation and I found your research to be extremely interesting, particularly your findings about the intersection of gender and tendencies towards collectivist values. I found it interesting, but not altogether surprising, that women identified students were more likely to align with collectivism and therefore experience less vaccine hesitancy. Based on your findings, you mentioned that the campus should implement policies that promote collectivism in order to decrease vaccine hesitancy. What do you think are some specific practices are that would help? Thanks for this!

  2. this is so interesting, Skye! the connection between gender and attitude towards COVID-19 related behaviors is intriguing! it also made me think about the ways in which these results would have been different in other countries with different cultures.

  3. This presentation was incredibly interesting and I’d imagine that you thoroughly enjoyed doing the research for this, especially with the time we are going through right now! I was not surprised at all that women were more likely to adhere to CDC guidelines as I think we have seen throughout campus as well and that women were more likely to be hesitant with vaccine. I wonder if this as to do with some literature stating there may be a correlation with infertility? It is interesting to think about how this pandemic has affected responses based on gender and how the gender reflects their attitudes. This study was very fascinating and interesting to look at during this time! I also, like Bella, wonder how this differs based on different cultures WITIN the U.S. and does specifically our campus in comparison to others!

  4. Overall amazing presentation, I loved your poster design, it’s very simple yet concise. As for the content, it’s very interesting. I had not considered the role that gender played on values and attitudes regarding vaccine hesitancy. And, I also agree with Bella and Mya that it would be super interesting to look at this correlation in individuals from other cultures/countries or within immigrant families and their children to see if whether the parents are more hesitant than the offspring or vise-versa. Education levels and work fields would also be interesting to study and see how they correlate with vaccine hesitancy.
