Against COVID-19 in Disproportionately Affected Communities
1. Conduct community-engaged research to promote awareness and enhance knowledge to overcome COVID-19 misinformation in diverse racial and ethnic populations across Texas.
2. Leverage existing community-partnerships and proven local strategies to increase uptake and active participation of diverse racial and ethnic groups in evidenced-based COVID-19 prevention practices and therapeutic trials (example: ongoing vaccine and future trials).
3. Disseminate science-based and targeted educational campaigns in diverse racial and ethnic communities and evaluate their impact on beliefs, attitudes, knowledge, and practices of COVID-19 prevention and treatment.
4. Develop sustainable community-engaged organizational capacity in Texas by creating a repository of local community-centric, evidence-based COVID-19 knowledge products (i.e. best practices) targeted towards populations experiencing disproportionate burden of COVID-19.
