Patient and community services

VCU Office of Health Equity collaborates with VCU Health and community organizations to develop and implement health-related social needs screening and referral models, such as the Anthem Food is Medicine grant with Feed More and the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association's Upstream QI Learning Collaborative model. We also work to align with concurrent efforts such as the Accountable Health Communities initiative, collaborating with the VCU Health Division of Community Health.

In addition, we will continue to provide support for the following:

  • Initiatives addressing COVID-19, such as the work by VCU Vaccine Corps, and outreach and education to minority and senior populations. To learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines, visit the it's my shot resources. 
  • VCU Health service learning and community engagement initiatives, such as the Richmond Health and Wellness Program.
