Weekly Win: As MCN has repeatedly put forth, community health centers and community advocacy groups have made unprecedented efforts to support the most vulnerable populations as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Here’s one article celebrating the work of a multilingual team: “COVID-19 is a Danger in Any Language. Minnesota is Trying to Share Information in as Many of Them as Possible.”




Have a safe and healthy weekend.
