Leveraging Nurse Volunteers to Combat Vaccine Misinformation

In this episode, we speak with Garrett Chan. He’s the nurse leader behind HealthImpact, which is a California-based organization that has driven workforce development innovations within nursing. Over the course of the pandemic, HealthImpact has been behind two major initiatives to help promote vaccine confidence: VaxForce and Trust a Nurse, Ask a Nurse. VaxForce was launched to recruit skilled volunteers who could perform vaccinations, while the Trust a Nurse, Ask a Nurse program relies on volunteer nurses to field vaccination questions from community members.

Garrett Chan is the president and CEO of HealthImpact, and also an associate adjunct professor at the University of California San Francisco. Previously, he served as Director for the Center for Education and Professional Development, and Director of Advanced Practice at Stanford Healthcare.

And check out our previous related episode with Lizett Leandro. She’s worked as a consultant for the Trust a Nurse, Ask a Nurse program.
