Misinformation around COVID-19 can contribute to people spreading and getting sick from the disease. That's why resources like those from the NIH Community Engagement Alliance Against COVID-19 Disparities (CEAL) website are critical.
The CEAL website offers fact sheets, videos, and infographics to address confusion around certain COVID-19 health and research questions. They can be used by health professionals, community leaders, or the public to help inform those around them. These resources, offered in English and Spanish, explain how vaccines work, why minority participation is important in clinical trials, and how contact tracing can help prevent the spread of the virus in your community.
By offering these resources and working with communities across the U.S., CEAL aims to improve COVID-19 outcomes in diverse communities around the U.S., especially those who have been more affected by COVID-19.
