During Part 2 of our series highlighting community health centers' response during the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue our journey outside of Pennsylvania to speak with Jeannie McIntosh, a family nurse practitioner at Community Health Center Inc. (CHC) in Connecticut. Jeannie provides primary health care to seasonal agricultural workers through a partnership with the Connecticut River Valley Farmworker Health Program. Jeannie shares with us how CHC, Inc. and the Connecticut River Valley Farmworker Health Program have adapted their methods of outreach, engagement, and education to provide care during the pandemic.
In Part 2 of our series, we also hear from Kristine Gonnella, Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives at the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) about the critical role community health centers play in emergency response and how NNCC is working to ensure health centers have the resources necessary to provide care during the pandemic.
