NIH CEAL Support for Engagement Opportunities

The NIH Community Engagement Alliance (CEAL) Against COVID-19 Disparities is available to identify experts for national- or state-level engagement activities. CEAL experts can speak on topics such as the impact of COVID-19 on communities of color, how the vaccines and other treatments work, and ways to engage your community in addressing the misinformation and mistrust about COVID-19.

Please download and complete the speaker request form to give us a better understanding of your event and your specific needs. Advance notice of not less than 2 weeks prior to the event is needed. We will do our best to respond to requests within 1 week.

Although we will make every attempt to fulfill all requests submitted, we cannot guarantee that CEAL expert panel participants and NIH representatives will be available for all events due to scheduling conflicts. Once you have completed the form, please send it to
