Taking COVID-19 Testing to the People in Jacksonville, Florida. Featuring Ann-Marie Knight, MHA, FACHE.
The Health Disparities Podcast
With Florida emerging as the new epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, care providers in Jacksonville knew they had to intervene decisively with a testing plan for all populations, including the most vulnerable. But they could see a problem with the drive-up testing model: many older and disenfranchised residents in Duval County do not have vehicles. Ann-Marie Knight describes how University of Florida Health Jacksonville took the testing to the people, the partnerships this inspired, and the surprising additional benefits which emerged. With Dr. Michelle Leak.
