SNHD teams up with local church to help communities of color combat COVID-19

From Las Vegas-

The COVID-19 pandemic is hitting minority communities particularly hard, but the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) is working to fight against the disparity.

The health district plans to do this by setting up community outreach centers. 8 News Now got an exclusive look inside the Health District’s very first center, located at All Saints Episcopal Church near Washington and Decatur in Las Vegas. 

One of its main goals is to help communities of color combat COVID-19.

The quiet courtyard at All Saints Episcopal Church is transforming into a healthcare haven. SNHD’s Southern Nevada Community Health Center will offer COVID-19 testing and telehealth services at the church, which is meant to serve the surrounding area’s diverse population. 

This is the first time the Health District’s Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) is doing outreach like this.
