Webinar Description: Community Health Workers (CHWs) are non-medical public health workers who connect communities to health care and social service providers. A CHW also builds individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support, and advocacy. Bryan Carcamo and Treva Smith will explain how CHWs are essential in helping communities have better health outcomes. This webinar will also explore how to best utilize CHWs in your organization to improve team-based care.
