Description: Through our partnership with Morehouse School of Medicine’s National Covid-19 Resiliency Network, Dream Corps JUSTICE is working to ensure that justice impacted individuals and their families have access to new COVID 19 related resources to help reduce the negative impact of the pandemic on their communities. Some of these resources include: a symptom checker, COVID-19 test locator, vaccine finder, factsheets, and more. The National COVID-19 Resiliency Network provides awareness of culturally appropriate health education information and linkage to care, helping organizations and families recover from pandemic difficulties.
