Owensboro Health reaches out to community's immigrant population to provide COVID-19 resources
Owensboro Health has coordinated with the International Center, the Green River District Health Department, Catholic Charities and local school districts to address specific health needs in the community.
The groups have recently held outreach events for immigrant populations in our area, providing translated educational materials about COVID-19. Attendees are given masks, hand sanitizer, gloves and information about the prevention and transmission of the virus.
These events are one of many ways we address the specific health needs of certain populations, such as older adults, children and others. Owensboro Health Community Outreach, Wellness, Population Health, Foundation and other areas work together to address the needs of these vulnerable populations.
