As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, local communities are facing some of the hardest challenges to date. With public health issues such as loss of income and food insecurity on the rise, care and resources have become difficult to access. In response, The Office of Community Health and Planning hosted the Bounty of Health two-day event. The first day was an hour-long virtual health education session where organizations throughout Miami-Dade County provided 5-minute videos on a variety of health topics. The second day event was a drive-thru food and health resource distribution. Over 300 families in the West Perrine community were provided with fresh foods, healthy beverages, health educational materials and information about local resources.

who worked with DOH-Volusia to evaluate
the effectiveness in reducing hep A rates
through community outreaches.

Amy McCandless, BS, BSN, RN, Family Nurse Practitioner doctoral student UCF College of Nursing, worked with DOH-Volusia to study the effectiveness of the hepatitis A vaccination and outreach activities in Volusia County. Her study aimed to evaluate DOH-Volusia’s current outreach practices and the effectiveness of vaccination of people at risk. High-risk groups were identified as the homeless and those incarcerated. Data indicated those vaccinated within the community were directly correlated with the number of declining cases. Outreach intervention can produce results and protection for high-risk individuals within a community to prevent and reduce the spread of hepatitis A.
