Hot Topics in Practice: The Evolving Role of a COVID-19 Community Advisory Group

The recent COVID-19 outbreak has had unprecedented impacts on a significant portion of the world’s population, but some groups are being hit harder than others. In the April session of Hot Topics in Practice, a staff representative from Public Health—Seattle & King County's Pandemic Community Advisory Group in Washington shares how their multi-sector committee is helping open lines of communication and partnership to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19, with a particular focus on vulnerable and disproportionately impacted communities. The one-hour conversation will review how this unique public-private-community partnership formed rapidly in response to critical community needs and highlight their framework for sharing information and surfacing issues during challenge times.

Register today to hear strategies for cross-sector engagement in your COVID-19 response.

These monthly Web-conferencing events, sponsored by the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice, provide an authoritative hour-long forum for discussing topics that are important to the public health practice community and the tribal health units in the six Northwest states: Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.
