Covid Informed

Lay Health Workers

About Lay Health Workers of the INFORMED Project:

A lay health worker in the INFORMED Project is someone who has been selected to teach others in their own communities about how to stay healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have been trained by the research staff to provide up-to-date information about COVID-19.

Our lay health workers are selected because they are warm, friendly, open-minded, and have expressed an interest in improving the health of their communities. They will lead health educational sessions about COVID-19, so that the important health messages will reach members of the communities in a culturally and linguistically appropriate way.
