Latest Chw News:
CHWs support the work of CHW-WFD projects by honing in on the challenges, strengths, and motivations of their clients and their daily lives. Not bound by the four walls of the clinic or a focus on specific diagnoses or treatments, CHWs work to eliminate barriers for their clients through community education, accompaniment, and coordination of enabling services. Tasks performed by CHWs are diverse; however, CHWs in the clinical/community center setting are most often involved in case coordination/management, outreach, and enrollment into care.
We encourage all CHW's to join our mailing list so you will be registered as a member of CHW Workforce. Membership supports your ability to become involved in this statewide movement to bring together CHWs and community stakeholders to establish the CHW practice as a stable and integral part of health and social service systems in the state of Massachussetts.
Potential CHWs looking for work, wanting to enroll in training, or looking for career planning assistance are encouraged to attend one of our many workshops! See below for brief descriptions of our most commonly held workshops. Be sure to also check out our events calendar for dates they are offered and additional workshops to attend.
