Community Health Workers (CHWs) are integral members of the healthcare team. They serve as a liaison between healthcare providers, social services, and the community to facilitate access to services and address issues that create barriers in healthcare delivery. CHWs provide care, education, support, follow-up, resources and referrals in community settings such as homes and neighborhoods. As a patient advocate, CHWs work in hospitals, clinics, and social settings to support progress in care-planning, access, and patient wellness. CHWs enjoy high job satisfaction and are in great demand.
