Community Health Worker Training

GSAHEC’s Community Health Worker (CHW) Training program, based on national models and in collaboration with community organizations, trains and supports CHWs who provide health promotion and disease prevention education to at-risk populations in medically underserved populations. CHWs are community members who work almost exclusively in community settings and promote health among groups that have traditionally lacked access to adequate care. The roles of CHW are to provide culturally appropriate health education, ensure people get the services they need, give information about illnesses and how to prevent them, and teach the basics about common health problems.
