Thanks to the collective efforts of QueensCare and QueensCare Health Centers staff and friends at New Economics for Women (NEW), we were able to hold our first-ever, #COVID_19 Testing event!
The event saw over 200 community members from NEW housing apartments, all eager to get tested for COVID-19. This event was made possible by the Direct Relief and Abbott Laboratories COVID-19 Community Health Grant for the development of a comprehensive COVID-19 testing infrastructure.
Patients were equipped with goody-bags, QHC branded swag, information, and a consultation with our Health Advocates for enrollment in health plans.
We are proud of all of our #HealthHeroes’ efforts and look forward to hosting more COVID-19 testing events on our campuses and within the community to directly serve at-risk populations.
Thank you #HealthHeroes! Thank you, Direct Relief & Abbott Laboratories!
