COVID-19 made it clear that health equity matters. So Healthy Savannah responded. By mobilizing existing community connections and resources, the COVID team:
- Gave $25,000 in mini-grants to more than 20 faith communities that highlighted COVID awareness, access, and acceptance.
- Offered promotional support and other resources to the faith community’s health fairs, back-to-school events, food giveaways, etc.
- Trained more than 30 Community Health Advocates, who shared masks, hand sanitizer, and science-based information with people in their neighborhoods, jobs, schools, and at sporting events.
