[Community ambassadors] get the right information from the community and give it back to the Coalition so that they can use the information to make changes that would benefit the community.Michael Jackson
The Community Ambassadors program prepares trusted community messengers to share important public health information and answer questions from their peers. In partnering with healthcare agencies, we facilitate bidirectional dialogue between community leaders and medical experts about health issues. This system creates direct avenues for inclusion of community members in problem-solving and innovation that helps keep their families and neighbors healthy, especially in times of crises like a pandemic.
During the COVID-19 pandemic our community engagement team partnered with other local organizations to host regular pop-up vaccination sites. At these events, we share information about COVID-19 and the vaccine with individuals who have any questions or concerns. The dialogue at pop-up sites has led to extensive conversations with community members around barriers to healthcare. These conversations have helped the Camden Coalition build stronger connections in the communities we serve, and these relationships continue to grow the more we are out in the field.
