2020 was a year unlike any other – both for the world and CCPH. As early signs began to point to a long-term disruption that would require change at every level of society, CCPH stepped up and pivoted its focus early in the summer of 2020. This virus called COVID-19 not only exposed the world’s weaknesses, but also disproportionately plagued already struggling communities. In partnership with the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) and the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill Center for Health Equity Research (CHER), CCPH helped build and continues to guide engagement efforts in underserved communities in its first national, NIH-funded COVID-19 initiative. Our key leadership role in establishing the Coordination Data Collection Center (CDCC) has allowed us to support more than 80 NIH-funded community projects in engaging communities, with a specific focus on COVID-19 testing in underserved populations. Please take a moment to share in our excitement as we review highlights from year one of CCPH’s work as part of the CDCC’s Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics in Underserved Populations (RADx-UP) project. This infographic, 2020-2021: Year in Review, offers a glimpse of the first 352 days of CCPH’s work, as part of RADx-UP, to address health disparities related to testing access in underserved communities. Stay tuned to learn more about CCPH’s COVID-19 projects.
