Examining the Impact of COVID on Community Health Centers, Part 1
This is the first of two episodes highlighting community health centers response during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this first episode, we venture outside of Pennsylvania to speak to two members of the nursing team at Callen-Lorde, a New York City community health organization that specializes in LGBTQIA healthcare. Nursing team members, Lara Comstock and Sime Phillips, discuss the specialized care they provide to the LGBTQIA community and the pandemic’s impact on Callen-Lorde. We also hear from Kristine Gonnella, Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives at the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium about how their organization is working with partners nationally to make public health preparedness resources more readily accessible to community health centers.
