Abstract

SC CTSI leveraged its Community Engagement team’s existing work with Latinx communities and launched a workshop over Zoom specifically tailored to Latinx and Black/African American community members. To date we have delivered this course, in both Spanish and English, to over 400 Latinx participants. A retrospective pre/post evaluation has demonstrated changes in knowledge on COVID-19 transmission, symptoms and finding a testing site. We will build off of this pilot by strengthening our evaluation to inform outreach and educational programming on the virus, and deepen our ties with the community to continue building trust and eventually provide additional information relating to clinical trials and vaccines.
