Cottage Center for Population Health is working to help slow the spread of covid-19 in the Latino community.
With the help of some Latino community-based organizations, several new community health ambassadors (CHAs) will start training this month on the basics of covid-19 prevention and outreach.
Officials say CHAs are members of the community who can help the company address racial and ethnic disparities in health.
About 200 CHAs will help distribute covid-19 prevention kits to their friends and neighbors.
