Global to Local
Timeframe: July 2017-June 2019 | Amount: $340,000
The Health and Housing Choice project directly addresses the many health disparities faced by lowincome Somali and Latino residents of SeaTac and Tukwila. Global to Local (G2L) has been actively engaged with these communities for the past six years on issues relating to healthcare access and health outcomes.
G2L will use PHPDA funding to support the work of two Community Health Workers (CHWs) and one part time HealthPoint staff, assigned to serve as a Clinical Community Liaison (CCL), all focused on reducing health disparities and improving health outcomes and access to care for Latino and Somali residents of SeaTac/Tukwila. The CHWs will be employed by G2L, while the CCL position will be subcontracted to HealthPoint.
