Community Health refers to non-clinical approaches for improving health, preventing disease and reducing health disparities. Our health educators work with residents to address social, behavioral, environmental, and economic aspects of health.
What is a Community Health Worker?
A Community Health Worker (CHW) is a trained member of a community who helps to improve the health and well-being of that community. Their primary role is to connect community members to the resources they need, especially in underserved communities. CHWs provide a personalized approach to improving health outcomes and are particularly important where there may be barriers to accessing healthcare or social services. If anyone needs assistance, they can call the CHW team for help in accessing the resources and services they need.
