Plenary

No Connection: Building a Virtual Workforce to Collect Data on the Navajo Reservation during COVID-19
Speaker: Ashleigh Manuelito

Overview: The Navajo Nation spans over 27,000 square miles and is home to over 298,000 enrolled members. During COVID-19, the Navajo Nation experienced one of the highest COVID rates in the world. In collaboration with many health programs and tribal leaders, Community Outreach Programming Engagement (COPE) spearheaded a virtual workforce in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Through combined efforts of many community members, COPE has been able to successfully measure the spread of the virus and ensure social support for affected families and communities. It is through these connections that allowed us to foster strong relationships within the communities where we work, enabling us to effectively mobilize high-impact programs and mitigate the impact of COVID-19.
