Stronger2 Promotes Health Literacy Within Local Communities of Color

Submitted by xlschwa on Fri, 02/25/2022 - 11:48 am

Anthony Mingo, Community Outreach Manager with the Fairfax County Health Department discusses the Stronger2 initiative. Through collaboration with community partners, Stronger2 aims to improve health outcomes in communities of color by cultivating an individual's ability to find, understand and use health information and services in a manner that is culturally and linguistically appropriate. Community partners are crucial to this program because they “[use] their trusted voice in community to be able to communicate those effective messaging around the importance of health literacy,” said Anthony Mingo, Stronger2 project leader.
