COVID Built Environment Initiative for a COVID Cancer and Health Literacy Initiative

Beginning in January 2023 our office is working with the IDPH Comprehensive Cancer Control on a project to train community health workers throughout the state of Illinois on the topics of health literacy and cultural competence. Each participant is invited to attend an initial training webinar, followed up with a second webinar that focuses on implementation of the strategies introduced. Our team consists of Dr. Yolanda Suarez-Balcazar, Dr. Olga Garcia-Bedoya, Dr. Alana Biggers, and Dr. Carolyn Dickens.
