What is the Community Health Worker program?

The Community Health Worker program prepares you to work in public health, private health care delivery systems, community-based social service agencies, and healthcare insurance organizations. Community Health Workers provide services to increase wellness and improve access to health services through outreach activities to target populations. The program will train you to develop positive relationships with individuals who need assistance and support in developing healthy behaviors, utilizing health resources, and gaining educational support to prevent or alleviate the effects of chronic disease. Hospitals, churches, clinics, insurance companies and nonprofit organizations all need the services of community healthcare workers.
