Health centers are currently balancing the wellbeing and safety of their workforce with the need to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. While “essential” staff are needed on the frontline, “non-essential” staff are either sent home to wait out the pandemic, or are deployed to perform alternative services to support COVID-19 response efforts. Join us in this webinar to learn about workforce strategies employed by health center leaders in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Health center leaders will discuss changes made to workflows, how primary and behavioral health care staff are deployed, and the level of involvement of “non-essential” staff in health center efforts.

This webinar on health center workforce deployment in COVID-19 response was hosted on April 14, 2020. Want to be informed about other upcoming webinars on health equity for underserved populations? Join our mailing list!
