Tracing Health

All Tracing Health team members have full PHI benefits, receive extensive and ongoing job training and the tools to work remotely. 

When COVID-19 arrived, it brought with it a wave of unemployment and economic instability. Due to longstanding inequities rooted in systemic racism, communities of color – who were at greater risk of serious symptoms and death from COVID-19 – were also more likely to lose their jobs, causing housing and food insecurity.  

In a matter of months Tracing Health recruited over 600 qualified team members, primarily from communities of color. Tracing Health worked through community partners, health systems, public health departments, and word of mouth to reach the candidates we needed.
