Grant Summary:

In our 15 years of experience training Community Health Workers (CHWs) for SUHI, Sinai Health System and other organizations (mostly healthcare organizations), we have identified a strong need for academic and community-based training opportunities for CHWs, CHW trainers and supervisors that will lead to mastery of the CHW profession. With this funding we would expand and further the work of our CHW training and consulting center, CROWD: Center for Community Health Worker Research, Outcomes and Workforce Development.
