Dear CommmuniVax Community,
We are thrilled to announce that we have received a new round of funding from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to continue support of the CommuniVax coalition. The project’s second phase will focus on strengthening the relationships between communities of color and key local public health systems.
This phase will deepen the work being done by 3 local research teams, with support from an expert working group. The local teams will work in 3 US sites—San Diego, California; Prince George’s County, Maryland; and Tuscaloosa, Alabama—to develop strategic and practical toolkits on local community health systems strengthening and to engage with stakeholders to solidify and sustain the local community health system.
The webinar will be held on February 10, 2022, 2:00-3:00pm ET.
Topics of discussion include best practices and lessons learned from the COVID-19 responses, the important role hyper-local community workforces and organizations play in building a community-health system, and the types of resources needed to achieve community health sustainability during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Register today!
In the coming weeks, we will resume sharing our newsletter with relevant news updates, funding opportunities, and resources. We are grateful for your continued support and engagement through the next phase of CommuniVax!
