Pandemic changed everything: from unemployment to pandemic relief from the government and how health service providers have worked hard to save innocent people’s lives. What kind of problems they are facing? From understanding different languages to many more issues  that health insurance navigators are facing. 

In this course we will discuss, these health providers how they provided in-person health services to the different communities like Russian, Uzbek, Tajik, the Turkish communities during the pandemic. There were many health insurance navigators who choose to work as in-person instead of remotely. We will focus on how they put their lives at risk to save humanity. We will discuss their efforts towards the community.
