Webinar: Improving African Immigrant Health Series Part II: A Photovoice Examining the Impact of COVID-19 on African Immigrants – Sep 29

Posted by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) on September 28, 2021

African immigrants have been uniquely affected by the coronavirus crisis. Social, cultural, and systemic factors place African immigrants at greater risk of both acquiring coronavirus and experiencing severe symptoms or death related to COVID-19. However, to date, information is not being systematically collected and translated to support the real-time development of effective, culturally, and linguistically appropriate COVID-19 interventions. Sauti is a photovoice project conducted to document challenges experienced by African immigrants during the pandemic and capture effective coping and support mechanisms used by African immigrants living in New England.

This webinar will present recommendations for healthcare providers and researchers to improve African immigrants’ engagement in COVID-19 prevention, treatment, and care.

Date and Time: Wednesday, September 29, 1-2:30 EST
