Special Initiative: Understanding the Role of Community Health Workers in Healthy Start

Community health workers (CHW) play an increasingly important role in helping Healthy Start (HS) Projects to keep women healthy. The Healthy Start EPIC Center has partnered with an outside researcher to explore the critical role played by CHWs through a survey of all HS grantees. The goal is to describe the role of CHWs in HS, including their background, experience, and primary responsibilities. The survey also explores training received, career advancement opportunities, potential impact on HS participant health outcomes, and progress around certification.  The HS EPIC Center will use the results of the survey to support CHWs who are part of HS Project teams, including the development of a customized training program accessible to all Healthy Start grantees.

This webinar will review the purpose and format of the survey, as well as how the Healthy Start EPIC center plans to use the results. We will provide an opportunity for grantees to ask any questions prior to beginning the survey. All responses for the survey will be due by August 7th.
