Community Conversation: Caring for our Vulnerable Populations
While COVID-19 has affected individuals of all ages, genders and races, the virus has been of utmost concern for our more vulnerable communities: seniors, individuals experiencing homelessness, people of color and low-income households. How are these vulnerable groups fairing during the COVID-19 pandemic? And what resources are in place to support these groups as the effects of COVID-19 continue?
Join us for a community conversation as Marin’s top public health experts answer your questions about this important topic.
WHAT: Community Conversation about Caring for our Vulnerable Populations
WHEN: Monday, April 27, 2020 at 6:30 PM.
- Benita McLarin, FACHE, Director of Marin County’s Health and Human Services Department
- Lisa Santora, M.D., Deputy Public Health Officer, County of Marin
Links for the live event will be shared in future status updates and you can find out more about the community conversation by visiting this website.
National Volunteer Appreciation week
In recognition of National Volunteer Appreciation week, the County of Marin would like to highlight the Marin Medical Reserve Corps (MMRC) volunteers supporting Marin County’s COVID-19 response.
Since February 28th, the MMRC volunteers have volunteered 1,065 hours in support of Marin County Health and Human Services. Volunteers are conducting contact investigations (including Spanish); serving as liaisons with Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly; actively involved in surge planning; and have supported a call center and logistics operations. In addition to being on standby for disaster response, MMRC volunteers are active year-round strengthening our community through public health emergency preparedness activities and community outreach and education. We are so grateful for our volunteer support!
If you are a healthcare worker and interested in volunteering, please visit the Marin Medical Reserve Corps website.
