National COVID-19 Resiliency Network (NCRN)

The Morehouse School of Medicine National COVID-19 Resiliency Network (NCRN) coordinates a strategic and structured network of national, state/territorial/tribal and local public and community-based organizations that will mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on racial and ethnic minority, and rural populations.

The National COVID-19 Resiliency Network is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health's National Infrastructure for Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19 within Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities (NIMIC).

Many community-based organizations and our Network members have joined the National COVID-19 Resiliency Network to access COVID-19 resources, participate in Regional Community Coalitions, and gain funding opportunities to advance work for their communities.

Communications & Dissemination

The NCRN COVID-19 Dissemination campaign was developed to encourage individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.  

In partnership with the National COVID-19 Resiliency Network and ICF Next! The development of these creative materials are based on formative research. Learn more about our NCRN Communications Study. Our findings guided the creation of effective and accessible communication materials about COVID-19 vaccines for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). 

We encourage our members to utilize and share these resources for your dissemination efforts to inform communities to get vaccinated.
