Community Health Worker Services
People's Health Center is excited to offer the services of a Community Health Worker (CHW) as part of expanded services grant funding provided by HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration).
The CHW is responsible for helping patients and their families navigate and access community services and other resources and adopt healthy behaviors. The CHW supports medical providers and the nurse case managers through an integrated approach to care management and community outreach. The CHW provides social support and informal counseling, advocates for individual and community health needs, and provides such services as basic first aid, blood pressure screenings, and simple wound care in the patient's home.
