Health & Wellness City Fest

May 6, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The City of Montgomery was awarded $3.9 Million by the Office of Minority Health (OMH) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in July 2021. The Advancing Health Literacy to Enhance Equitable Community Responses to COVID-19 grant seeks to demonstrate the effectiveness of local government implementation of evidence-based health literacy strategies that are culturally appropriate to enhance COVID-19 testing, contact tracing, and/or other mitigation measures (e.g., public health prevention practices and vaccination) in racial and ethnic minority populations and other socially vulnerable populations, including racial and ethnic minority rural communities.

To accomplish the goals and objectives of the grant, the City of Montgomery and grant partners created the Central Alabama Neighborhood Health Initiative (CANHI) to collaboratively increase the rates of COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, increase health literacy, improve patient experience and patient-provider relations in Elmore, Montgomery, and Pike Counties.
