The Role of Community Health Centers as Public Health Emergency First Responders: One Year Into the COVID-19  

The nation’s community health centers have long played a crucial role as public health first responders, but never have they been asked to serve on such a large scale. One year into the COVID-19 pandemic, this webinar will address how the COVID-19 emergency has affected community health centers and explore the crucial role played by health centers in achieving the goal of health equity in emergency response – a role so central, that the Biden administration immediately identified community health centers as essential to its sweeping American Rescue Plan (ARP). Presenters will discuss what the data tell us about the impact of the pandemic on community health center operations, staffing and finances, and the indispensable role of community health centers in the hardest-hit and most at-risk communities in providing COVID-19 testing, treatment, and vaccinations. Presenters also will discuss the ARP’s investment in both people and the health care safety net, along with the implications for health centers as full-scale implementation moves forward.
