will allow six Urban League affiliates to build vaccine confidence and bolster COVID-19 vaccination through community health navigators.

“One lesson we’ve learned through the COVID-19 pandemic is that trusted voices within communities, such as our affiliate Presidents and CEOs, are the best way to overcome vaccine hesitancy, combat misinformation, and connect people with health care providers,” National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial said. “With the support of the HRSA, our affiliates can expand their reach by hiring a local Community Health Navigator workforce to help keep our communities informed,  safe and healthy.”
