National Community Health Worker Day
Promotores de Salud / Community Health Workers / Community Health Representatives (CHWs) are key links between patients/clients and providers. They often are from the communities in which they work, are well versed in community resources and how to access them, and are deeply committed to assisting those they serve in culturally competent and compassionate ways. We’re so happy to have collaborated with many CHWs over the years and worked on many CHW related projects. Happy CHW Day!!
Check out the letter from President Obama (to the right) in which he honors the years of work of CHWs.
