COVID-19 Lay Health Advisor Program
On Saturday 2/19, we organized an all-day training for our new COVID-19 Lay Health Advisors! Our four lay health advisors will be visiting their neighbors in Siler City to offer help and share information about the COVID-19 vaccine and testing.
In the next few months, the lay health advisors will be going door-to-door at Loves Creek, Santa Fe and Country Living Mobile Home Park. If you live in Loves Creek, keep an eye out for Maria Herrera and Kenia Uribe-Arraiza, and if you live in Santa Fe or Country Living keep an eye out for Lupe Tavera and Ervin Martinez.
If you have questions or need help to make an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine, booster or testing, please call us at 919-742-1448.
