Unidos en Nuestra Salud' Providing Capacity Building to our Community Members as Well as Public Health Education Regarding COVID-19

Unidos en Nuestra Salud is an initiative that aims to provide health education, health literacy and health information skills to the Spanish speaking community including but not limited to health information intermediaries, librarians, community health workers, 131s and community members that speak Spanish and are medically underserved populations. Unidos en Nuestra Salud will be in the city of New Orleans, a medically underserved area, and will reach medically underserved communities that speak Spanish that are at a higher risk of developing severe symptoms if contracting COVID-19 and have next to none access to health education and health information literacy skills development. Through culturally relevant text messages, a Spanish and English direct healthline, an online health education resources library, and partnerships with local libraries and local grassroots organizations, Unidos en Nuestra Salud will provide and promote trainings on health literacy, health education, COVID-19 authoritative information and other related topics.
