Community Health Workers: Current Developments in National and State Policy - NCA FEATURED

‐ Mar 16, 2018 8:30am

Community health workers (CHWs) have made important contributions to communities and health and social service systems for decades. Although interest in the CHW workforce has grown in recent years, further progress is impeded by fragmented policy development efforts, persistent lack of stakeholder understanding of CHWs, and lack of a unified voice for the workforce itself. This session will describe two prominent new and interrelated national projects addressing these barriers, and provide an update on important initiatives by federal agencies and national organizations regarding CHWs.
