Minnesota Public Health Association
APHA recognizes a community health worker (CHW) as a frontline public health worker who is a trusted member of and/or has an unusually close understanding of the community served. This trusting relationship enables the worker to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and the community to facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery.
Please join us on February 15th, 5:30 – 7:30 pm to learn about Minnesota efforts to recognize the impact of CHWs in public health and ensure that their employers understand the services they can provide.
