  • Coordinate participation in surveys, focus groups and interviews that are population and demographic specific, assessing clients’ COVID-19 knowledge, attitudes and practices, particularly related to vaccine hesitancy and acceptance in different populations and how these change over time with messaging.

  • Assist in the dissemination and tracking of COVID-19 messaging.

  • Use platforms such as Facebook Live events, webinars, or guest appearances on local radio shows to share messages around COVID-19 and gather input from community members.

  • Assist office and project leadership in identifying and addressing barriers clients face in accessing COVID-19 preventive measures and the vaccine.
