Community Health Worker Advisory Workgroup
The Community Health Worker Advisory Workgroup brings together community health workers (CHW), representatives from local health departments, federally qualified health centers, nonprofits, universities and other organizations who employ, want to employ or work with CHWs to share information and advance the CHW profession. The advisory workgroup currently has three subcommittees: certification, evaluation and curriculum.
All are welcome to join and participate in the advisory workgroup. Meetings are held quarterly on the fourth Wednesday in January, April, July and October from 1:30 – 3 p.m. Eastern time. Meetings are held via Zoom.
Kentucky Association of Community Health Workers
The Kentucky Association of Community Health Workers was formed in 2016 to advocate and promote the CHW profession in Kentucky. The association views CHWs as the missing link between the healthcare provider and the client. This relationship plays a key role in improving the health of our communities.
