Professions Working with Community Health Workers Training

Community Health Workers are often just one member of a highly trained team, but what exactly can they do for a clinical or care team? Our Professions Working with Community Health Workers L.E.A.D. (Listen, Empower, Advance, Deliver) curriculum sessions are for related positions in your organization such as nurses, social workers, medical assistants, physicians, outreach workers, and others that may not be familiar with Community Health Workers or the CHW model.

The Professions Working with Community Health Workers L.E.A.D. curriculum sessions are designed as a complement to the Community Health Worker training sessions and can be provided as:

  • as individual sessions or as an entire training level
  • in English or Spanish
  • as a live, fully interactive video training in real time or on-site at the location of your choice
