Community Engagement Spotlight Series
Introducing MCW Community Engagement's new monthly virtual program - Community Engagement Spotlight! First session with Wade Fernandez, Wednesday September 15, 2021 | 4-5 p.m.
The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Office of Community Engagement (OCE) is very pleased to announce a new series, Community Engagement Spotlight. This monthly virtual series will feature community partners and the important work they are doing for and with the community. We will highlight their goals, motivations, and accomplishments and the ways they have partnered with people and programs at MCW. Audience members will hear stories of resilience and inspiration from those who work on the ground – often silently – to make a positive impact on the health and lives of people in our community. In addition, each session will include time for audience members to engage directly with these amazing individuals during an interactive segment.
Meet Wade Fernandez | Sept 15 | 4-5 p.m.
During the recent pandemic Wade was instrumental in delivering COVID-19 messaging and care to underserved communities through film, music, and livestreaming while also delivering basic needs on the ground with the Creative Health Collective. This group of community health workers was supported through the AHW-funded STOP COVID-19 project which focused on community-generated, equitable response strategies to COVID-19, and was facilitated by Dr. Zeno Franco, MCW, and the City and County of Milwaukee.
