COVID-19 has shown how our community is interconnected.
But everyone’s experience of the pandemic has not been the same.
At the start of the pandemic here in Lexington, critical information was only being released in English, even though more than 185 languages are spoken in Lexington.
RADIOLEX worked with the Mayor’s Office, the Governor’s Office, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, and many non-profit community partners to ensure no one in our community was left out of the conversation.
As we move forward, RADIOLEX wants to ensure everyone has access to resources to stay healthy and keep our community safe.
With generous support from the Kentucky Department of Public Health, Office of Health Equity, RADIOLEX will share preventative health tips each month on television, radio, and online in English and the top 10 other languages spoken in our community: Spanish, Swahili, Arabic, Japanese, Nepali, French, Chinese (Mandarin), Kinyarwanda, Korean, and Portuguese.
RADIOLEX will also collaborate with local community partners to offer free wellness clinics at a variety of local events around Lexington. These clinics will offer a variety of health screenings for blood pressure, cancer risk, and hearing as well as COVID boosters, the flu, and other vaccines required for school, travel, and general health.
