Assessing COVID-19’s Impact on Kissimmee

As the U.S. continues to face the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disproportionately impacted communities of color, Centene Corporation (NYSE: CNC), a leading multi-national healthcare enterprise, and the National Minority Quality Forum (NMQF), an independent research and educational organization dedicated to ensuring high-risk racial and ethnic populations receive optimal healthcare, have selected Osceola Community Health Services and Sunshine Health to participate in the “Minority and Rural Health Coronavirus Study (MRCS)” to assess the impact of COVID-19 on racial minorities and underserved communities.

“COVID-19 continues to have a devastating impact in Florida, particularly among communities of color and rural populations. As part of our mission to transform the health of our communities, we are proud to partner with OCHS to increase access to COVID-19 testing and provide important data and evidence-based solutions to improve health disparities in Florida.”

— Liz Miller, CEO of Centene’s Florida health plans
