COVID-19 Outbreak Response Team (CORT)
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, HHCPC recognizes that there are gap areas where health education is needed to provide culturally relevant information to our focus community: the Hmong, refugee and immigrant communities. This team of HHCPC members consists of community leaders, HHCPC members, and government staff.
Our purpose is to lead culturally responsive public health messages and provide centralized sources of credible and comprehensive health information on COVID-19 via multi-platform approaches to our focus community. In serving this purpose, the Hmong community will be able to access useful and accurate information about COVID-19 to comply with strategies and goals, adhere to medical advice, and de-escalate psychosocial and cultural tensions.
Members of CORT:
Dr. Chameng Vang, D.O.
Soon Chun Vue
Pa Chia Yang
Dr. Jim Lee, D.C.
Thank you to our sponsors, members, partners, friends, family, and community members for the continued support!
