Building Trust, Breaking Barriers

When COVID-19 vaccines became available, removing barriers to the vaccine for new immigrants and non-English speaking communities took some creativity — and collaboration. One small-town hospital in southern Indiana worked with local schools, churches, and nonprofits to form a Hispanic health task force, and worked with a group of trilingual high school students to get vaccine information to residents who speak a rare language. Learn how they did it, and why such trust-building efforts will continue to pay off.
