  • Description:
    In this issue, we spotlight early leaders and partner organizations of the NIVDP. Since the NIVDP launched in 2011, many partners have continued their commitment to promote the benefits of flu vaccination among the medically underserved. Some of these partners include:

    • Ray Michael Bridgewater with the Assembly of Petworth in Washington, DC, who has coordinated over 50 flu vaccination clinics annually since 2010;

    • German Valbuena of the Hispanic Institute for Blindness Prevention in Falls Church, Virginia, who was named “Neighborhood Health Champion” in 2014 at the Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit for his innovative outreach strategies and multi-sector partnerships;

    • Helen Bradbury of the Urban Inter-Tribal Center in Dallas, Texas, whose outreach efforts have increased flu vaccination among American Indian/Alaska Native people;

    • Tiffany Tate, the Executive Director of the Maryland Partnership for Prevention, whose leadership has been valuable in promoting the merits of partnerships to engage grassroots stakeholders and trusted messengers; and

    • Radio Campesina, the third largest Spanish-language radio network in the nation, which hosted live interviews with CDC and NIVDP subject matter experts (SMEs) to educate millions of migrant farmworkers about the risks of flu-related health complications.
