Boomers Leading Change seeks support for necessary enhancements to its pioneering Health Navigator/Community Health Worker training program to better prepare its older adult volunteer work force to assist diverse medically underserved populations in metro Denver. This project will enable BLC to improve its curriculum to align with recently issued state standards and deliver state-of-the-art training to 70 older adult volunteers by mid-2019, ultimately benefiting the clients served at 40+ nonprofit partner sites.
