The provider developed a webinar for rural physicians to identify opportunities to use health clinics and community health workers to address low vaccination rates. The activity was planned by the clinicians who oversee area health clinics, including undergraduate medical and nursing students who work in the clinic. The clinicians and students were the presenters in the webinar, sharing information about the clinics’ locations, services, and hours of operations. In addition, the students shared their “lessons learned” from their experiences working together with community health workers in the free clinics to address issues that include crisis prevention and intervention, preventative health promotion, and developing a community vaccine program.
