GET INVOLVED TODAY!
As a Coalition we are currently engaged in a variety of initiatives including work in social impact and investment, overdose, harm reduction and prevention, health equity outcomes, violence prevention and intervention, interprofessional practice, and much more.
Most recently, the CHW Coalition - in partnership with trusted partners- have been awarded a federal grant from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which focuses on improving and expanding our existing CHW efforts. More specifically, our CHWs will lead system-level decision makers and members of community as we work, together, to build and strengthen community resilience. This effort was catalyzed by COVID-19 and the need for concentrated, comprehensive, cross-sector collaboration to adequately, and equitably, address health disparities.
