In the middle of the pandemic, the City of Albany was labeled the COVID epicenter of south Georgia. Hear how one community organization in Albany implemented programs to support a community with health challenges that provided the perfect breeding ground for the spread of the virus. Georgia ACT will also share what they encountered around the state on their 42-city 3V (Vaccines, Visions and Votes) Liberation Tour, and discuss their grant-funded partnership with Georgia Watch, the Morehouse School of Medicine, Georgians for Healthy Future, Public Agenda and Altarum – an initiative focused on training community healthcare workers to engage with local community leaders and elected officials in support of funding, programs, and services for their communities.
