The Power of Community Partnerships in Atlanta’s Fight Against COVID-19

Dec 03, 2020 12:00PM—1:00PM




Please join PIH and CORE for an interactive virtual event to hear from partners driving efforts to combat COVID-19 in Atlanta, Georgia. PIH will share how they are using lessons learned from over 30 years of fighting infectious diseases around the world to combat COVID-19 in the U.S. with a focus on contact tracing and care resource coordination. CORE, an emergency relief nonprofit serving marginalized communities affected by crisis, will discuss the free COVID-19 testing and wraparound services they are providing as part of their integrated pandemic strategy.

Local government and community leaders of Atlanta’s COVID-19 response will discuss the role global and local partners play on the spectrum of the test-trace-isolate strategy and the collective impact we hope to achieve.
