Event Details

Event Description

Community Health Workers (CHWs) are an important link between healthcare services and residents in the community. From facilitating healthcare access to improving the well-being of individuals, CHWs provide a service that positively impacts the lives of a community’s most vulnerable groups. The roles and responsibilities of CHWs vary and their role is expanding within organizations and programs.

Register now for our webinar on June 26 at noon EST to hear from our panel of CHWs representing a community-based organization, a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), and a pharmacy. Learn how they are working with individuals in the community to address various topics and conditions, and improve community health outcomes, including reducing unnecessary emergency department visits and hospitalizations
