Meet Janel Lowman, a colleague of Dr. JYP
and one of her favorite people. On this episode, they will talk
about the function and importance of community health workers and
outreach. Janel holds a
Master of Health Administration and has more than a decade of
community outreach experience with the University of South Alabama.
Her current role is senior manager of community outreach at the USA
Health Mitchell Cancer Institute. This means she is the tip of the
spear for engaging and communicating with the local community;
plus, she is vital for developing and implementing cancer screening
initiatives throughout the region.
Janel will deep dive on how she handled the challenges to patient outreach caused by the COVID pandemic, as well as share some of the lessons she learned by working on the front lines of the 2010 BP oil spill. Plus, she will fill us in on what it takes to become and be a true community health worker hero.
Enjoy the show.
