The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the insufficient health infrastructure in place for reaching populations including low-income, homebound older adults and rural agricultural workers, and communities across the country are struggling to adopt effective prevention and control models that meet the needs of all residents. On behalf of CITRIS Health, I invite you to join our upcoming webinar: Lessons on Scaling Equitable Vaccine Distribution to Help High-Risk Populations at 9:00am PT on May 20, 2021.
The webinar will focus on the lessons learned through the development and deployment of vaccination efforts across three programs: Lighthouse, which reaches older adults in affordable housing communities; ACTIVATE, which reaches rural agricultural workers in California’s Central Valley, and Healthy Davis Together, which has taken a community-centric approach to pandemic prevention and control. As all populations are now eligible for vaccines, these efforts have mobilized to provide vaccines and address the vaccine distribution disparities preventing priority populations from full access to care.
Join us for a conversation with Dr. David Lindeman, Director of CITRIS Health; Veronica Chavez, Community Outreach Manager at Livingston Community Health; Helidee Millan-Govea, Community Outreach Manager at Livingston Community Health; Sheri Peifer, Senior VP and Chief Strategy Officer of Eskaton, Darlene Cullivan, Senior Manager of Outreach and Impact at Eskaton and Dr. Sheri Belafsky, Medical Director of Healthy Davis Together, as they discuss the lessons learned through the development and deployment of their vaccine initiatives, the importance of partnerships with trusted community organizations, and the equity considerations required for building an equitable infrastructure for providing vaccines to underserved populations. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists and learn how they can quickly adapt the lessons learned to increase vaccine access across California and the United States.
