VIRTUAL EVENT- COVID-19: Engaging Communities Equitably in the Recovery Process
June 13 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
During the COVID-19 pandemic, issues of community engagement and health equity emerged as critical areas of focus. Throughout this period, Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) serves as the engagement lead on several NIH COVID-19 projects. Most recently, CCPH has partnered with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as the community engagement lead on a new initiative called RECOVER.
NIH launched RECOVER in 2021 to address the long-term effects of the SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19. This national research effort brings together scientists, clinicians, patients, caregivers, community members, and other partners to identify the causes for and means to prevent and treat post-COVID conditions and symptoms, including what is commonly called Long COVID or long-haul COVID.
CCPH has recruited Dr. Natasha Williams and Dr. Tony Minor to present for a special webinar on Long COVID and community engagement. Join us for this opportunity to hear first-hand about the work on Long COVID and opportunities for community engagement. We also hope to hear from individuals who are or have experienced Long COVID.
