Introduction | June 11th, 2020
Featuring Jenny Englerth & Dr. Hetal Patel
The June 11 briefing, led by Jenny Englerth, Family First Health President and CEO, and Dr. Hetal Patel, a Family First Health physician, discussed data gathered from Family First Health’s COVID-19 treatment and testing and provided insight into the patient-provider experiences regarding COVID-19. Among the data released: When a person’s ethnicity is Hispanic or Latino, he/she is five times more likely to have a positive test result. This isn’t due to race alone; risk factors such as high-density housing, high-contact employment and access to nutritional foods all play a role in testing positive for the virus.
