Healthy Long Beach

2020-2023

#HealthyLB:

Regardless of our race, income, age, or living situation, everyone in Long Beach deserves to be healthy and protected, especially during a global pandemic. 
The Healthy Long Beach campaign was created to support health equity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through the 2020-2023 Healthy LB campaign, Long Beach Forward:

  • collaborated with neighborhood leaders, community organizations, and government leaders across Long Beach’s most vulnerable neighborhoods;
  • coordinated community-led solutions that delivered public health information;
  • guided people to vaccinations;
  • supported families in navigating the rapidly changing COVID-19 landscape;
  • safely moved between the streets and digital spaces, to bring people together towards a fair and just COVID-19 response.

 

Thanks to the help of people like you, our Healthy Long Beach team was out in neighborhoods, on the ground, able to support vulnerable communities who are often left out of decision-making. We made sure these neighbors were prioritized in local COVID-19 responses and preventions in Long Beach, leading to more equitable health outcomes across our city.

Research and Knowledge 

  • Flattening the Curve: Given all the major events and large gatherings that are shuttering, it’s important to understand why we need to do this. Our goal is to flatten the curve. Our healthcare system is currently being pushed hard with the influx of cases (and potential cases). The number of cases will increase and we want to make sure we can manage the increased load.

  • Get the facts straight: CBC News medical contributor and family physician Dr. Peter Lin breaks down the facts about what it is, where it came from, how it spreads and what you can do to protect yourself.
