Two representatives of the Community Care HUB at the 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health will take part in a national panel and peer exchange discussion, “Advancing Racial Equity and Health in Community Settings,” at 12:00 pm on April 6. The event is part of the Healthiest Cities & Counties Challenge, a program funded by the Aetna Foundation, together with the American Public Health Association (APHA) and the National Association of Counties (NACo), to support communities that are changing the way they work together across sectors to reduce disparities in chronic disease outcomes.

1889 Foundation, in partnership with the 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health (CPH), is leading one of the 20 teams chosen to participate in the Challenge. 1889 Foundation received $100,000 to support the work of their key funding initiative, the new Community Care HUB in Cambria County.

The April 6 virtual panel will feature Flor Hernandez, a HUB Community Health Worker employed by Beginnings, Inc., and Leanna Bird, project manager at the CPH. Interested members of the public are invited to participate and can register at the link below.
