Community health workers (CHWs) webinars hosted by the Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN).
This two-part webinar series offers an introduction to COVID-19 to support Community Health Workers (CHWs) in their efforts to promote acceptance and uptake of COVID-19 vaccines in the communities they serve. CHWs serve a critical role in the sharing of information about COVID-19 and they regularly experience challenges due to misinformation and disinformation, which are hindering communities from being fully vaccinated.
- Part 1 will review the core information that CHWs need to know about COVID-19, variants and vaccines available. It also will help CHWs identify trusted sources of information and resources to address misinformation and disinformation.
- Part 2 will focus on vaccine resources for refugee, immigrant and migrant communities and show ways to create communications campaigns and tailor materials that are responsive to the cultural and linguistic needs of the community serve.
This webinar is offered in English with Spanish interpretation. A Spanish-only version will be facilitated in February.
