Learn more about CT’s growing Community Health Worker Workforce

 

CHW Resource Site Launched

UConn Health Center and Southwest AHEC are pleased to announce the launch of the Connecticut Community Health Worker website. The site was developed to support the growing CHW workforce by highlighting CHW stories, serving as a resource for training opportunities, and educating the public on the roles of CHWs. The site features the roles of CHWs as adapted from the National Community Health Worker Core Consensus (C3) Project by the SIM CHW Advisory Committee. Future plans for the site include sections for career opportunities, resources, and credentialing. Credentialing and certification will be a key focus of the CHW Team and the Advisory Committee over the coming year as they work to fulfill the requirements of Senate Bill 126, now Public Act 17-74, An Act Concerning Community Health Workers. Check out the CHW website and share your feedback as we continue to build on this important resource.
