National COVID-19 Resiliency Network

 

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 Human and Health Services Office of Minority Health's National Infrastructure for Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19 within Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities (NIMIC).

We welcome all organizations and individuals to join the National COVID-19 Resiliency Network to access COVID-19 resources. Organizations are encouraged to use the resources for their dissemination efforts to communities they work with. Community members are encouraged to share the resources with their families and friends.
