CHWs are not just a concept
we are an ever-evolving global workforce!

Welcome to the dynamic world of Community Health Workers (CHWs),

where the roots of our vital workforce extend across decades. Far from being a recent innovation, CHWs remain an integral part of global healthcare,

continuously emerging and elevating their professional standing.


This page serves as a portal into the fundamentals of CHW work.

Unravel the secrets behind the workforce's growth, explore the relevant history

that has shaped its trajectory, and discover actionable entry points

in Missouri's CHW space. Join us in celebrating the past, present, and future of CHWs,

as we pave the way for a healthier and more connected community.



Dive into a virtual hub of wisdom tailor-made for community health workers (CHWs),

where you'll rub virtual shoulders with seasoned CHW specialists from all corners of the state.

And the best part?

It won't cost you a dime!


Thanks to good ol' video conferencing magic, ECHO links up dream teams of experts spanning various fields.

This crafted, cozy, virtual space- led by CHWs - aims to create an inclusive hangout where we can swap stories,

learn from each other, and beef up those skills.

The idea?


Boost your superpowers to better uplift the families and communities you're passionate about.

Don't miss out on the Community Health Worker ECHO sessions,

held from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month.
