Community health worker summit

Community Health Worker Virtual Summit

Thursday, December 10, 2020 from 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM EST

How are community health workers (CHW) making neighborhoods stronger across southwestern PA? What best practices should CHWs follow? What networks can CHWs join to further their career?

Join us virtually to hear from local community health workers, as well as statewide and national leaders who will share best practices, perspectives on sustainability of the sector, and the unique roles community health workers undertake in the community. Community health workers will use this forum as a place to share resources, network and collaborate. Health equity, social justice and environmental justice will be addressed.
