A local health care organization has launched an online COVID-19 resource hub to provide the community with reliable, fact-based information.

Executives at WE-SPARK Health Institute met with some healthcare partners and discussed how best to direct people to reliable information.

Some wanted mental health links for their families, or local numbers or even information on moving a research idea forward.

WE-SPARK launched its resource hub Monday offering statistics, research opportunities, information and resources for healthcare professionals, mental health supports, local updates and supports for children and teens.

“We created this one-stop-shop resource — for researchers, healthcare providers and our community — there’s something there for everyone” stated Dr. Lisa Porter, Executive Director WE-SPARK Health Institute.
