Abstract

As communities of color are disproportionately affected by COVID-19, there is an urgent need for dissemination of timely and accurate information to community members. In this article, we describe a stakeholder approach for the implementation, evaluation, and lessons learned from COVID-19 Conversations, a program developed and delivered virtually by researchers and academics at Northwell Health. The goal of the program was to address the mental, physical, and psychosocial needs of community members. The program used Zoom/Facebook Live to deliver interactive discussions on topics ranging from health education on COVID-19 and mental health to resources for unmet social needs. This interprofessional, cross-sector collaboration highlights the importance of public health interventions aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19 through easy online access and culturally relevant community education and outreach.
