A public health perspective on NADA, a tool for community building and resilience.
with Keynote Speakers Heather Flynn and Marcus West
June 11, 2021 | 12:00-4:30 PM EDT
Learn more about how to safely support your communities using the NADA protocol during the pandemic.
This meeting is a public health event to raise awareness of how to practice the NADA protocol according to published recommendations for mitigation of risk during the Covid-19 pandemic. The program addresses the importance of balancing CDC compliance with existing disparities in health care access across social, racial, and economic lines brought into stark relief by the Covid-19 pandemic. Offering the NADA protocol can serve as a bridge towards increased access to mental health and trauma care, and a tool for community building and resilience.
