Congratulations to our own Joe Mazzola and Dr. Mysheika Roberts for winning Columbus CEO Executives of the Year!From the story: "Mazzola says he never thought he’d be in the public eye as much as he has been in the past 12 months, but he is 'very, very thankful to work in public health' and with his staff in particular."And as Joe hints at here, thank you to all of our staff that have worked nights, weekends and made numerous sacrifices to ensure FCPH can tackle this pandemic the best we can. This struggle has needed many hands to keep up the fight, and it's been an honor to do incredible work with the incredible people of this agency.Read the story here: www.columbusceo.com/story/business/awards/ceo/2021/02/26/dr-mysheika-roberts-and-joe-mazzola-colu... ...

Black History Month is vital to public health, and no one knows that better than FCPH Board Member Latisha Chastang.“It’s an opportunity to acknowledge the past and present accomplishments of African Americans,” Chastang said. “I reflect on these accomplishments 365 days a year, as it is a part of my foundation and guides my work in the community.”Chastang, the first African American woman to serve on the agency’s board, has seen FCPH make strides towards public health equity since she started on the board in 2019. For the past 15 years, Chastang has been with IMPACT Community action. She’s seen IMPACT address the social determinants of health through their many programs and services, such as their rental and mortgage assistance services which stabilize households and help people stay in their homes. She also said they provide services through their workforce development and youth programs, financial education and home weatherization.She also acknowledged public health still has a long way to go in achieving health equity.“We need to continue conversations in the community and make changes in public policy,” she said. “We can make these changes by building trust with our community. Especially with our African American community and special populations. Many do not come to us in public health because of fear and lack of trust.” “Trust has to be built,” she added.Chastang said an important step towards health equity was when the board declared racism as a social determinant of health in May, and was one of the first public health organizations to make this declaration. She also vowed to keep doing everything she could to make health equity a reality. “As a member of the Board of Health, I will continue to lean-in and ask the questions that may be or feel uncomfortable to make sure that there is equity for each and every person in Franklin County,” she said. ...

It’s been said vaccines will help us return to normal. But it’s also going to be because of people.Specifically: Our people.Our nurses and other frontline support staff have given out more than 11,000 doses of vaccine to help keep our community safe, healthy and protected. And they do so at the cost of long hours, working holidays and weekends and disruptions to their own personal lives.To these members of our FCPH family, thank you. We love you and you all are the engine moving us forward in this journey.We’re honored to work with you, and will not forget your sacrifices or take them for granted ❤️ #vax2normal #nurses #family ...

As everyone knows, vaccine supply is limited, which is why unfortunately Franklin County Public Health will not be scheduling individuals 65 years of age and older the week of February 8th. Our limited supply will not stop us from helping our community. We will be giving 4,500 vaccinations next week to those we can: Second doses for first responders and frontline workers in Phase 1A and the clients of the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities. We continue to be honored to help these groups get vaccinated.We also plan to schedule an extra clinic day next Saturday (Feb. 13th) so we can get as many people through clinic and protected as possible.While we are disappointed about the limited supply, there are other local providers continuing to give out first doses. We encourage residents age 65 and older to check the list providers on the ODH website (vaccine.coronavirus.ohio.gov/). We are hopeful vaccine supplies will increase in the coming weeks so we can continue to vaccinate even more of our community!To learn more, read our update at: covid-19.myfcph.org/franklin-county-public-health-fcph-covid-19-weekly-status-statement-february-... ...
