NMQF, Centene to Study Impact of COVID-19

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 Teche Action Clinic and the Louisana Department of Public 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 testing is critically needed in underserved communities, and we’re pleased to team up with Teche Action Clinic, the Louisiana Department of Public Health, and Louisiana Healthcare Connections to provide testing in areas where it is needed most.”   — Ron Coursey, Vice President of Federally Qualified Health Centers and Public Health of Quest Diagnostics
