Using Local Data to Plan and Prioritize COVID-19 Vaccine Outreach and Communications in Wisconsin Communities
February 24, 2021 | 4:00pm – 4:45pm CST
Featuring: Jessica Bonham-Werling, Director, ICTR Neighborhood Health Partnerships Program
COVID-19 vaccination may be off to a slow start, but soon supply levels will rise and processes will be streamlined. Thoughtfully designed outreach with well-crafted messages will be of the utmost importance to ensure enough people are vaccinated to put us on the path to population immunity and long-term protection from the disease. As decision-makers plan and implement vaccination campaigns, understanding the risk of death (mortality) from COVID-19 and potential barriers to vaccine uptake by ZIP code will be valuable in building effective communication and outreach plans in each community.
With this in mind, UW Neighborhood Health Partnerships Program (NHP) partnered with the Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ) and researchers at the UW Health Innovation Program (HIP) to develop a tool that will help community-level decision makers prioritize their COVID-19 vaccination outreach in Wisconsin communities. In this webinar, Jessica Bonham-Werling, Director of NHP and Associate Director of Research Operations at HIP will dive into this innovative new approach.
