Mind the Gap: Innovation in COVID-19 Education, Engagement & Outreach

February 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In this session of the Emergency Preparedness, Ethics and Equity series, researchers and community advocates will provide insights into a digital and print campaign developed to increase awareness about COVID-19 in Black and brown communities. Not A Host (NAH) is a grassroots effort designed to bridge the knowledge gaps around COVID-19 transmission and prevention and the systemic and structural influences that disproportionately impact minority communities. This collaborative effort has drawn the expertise of health behavior scientists, educators, epidemiologists, community psychologists and community advocates dedicated to equity in health.
