Workshops Overview

Our workshops are flexible by design and are most successful when a variety of staff participate, including Community Health Workers (CHWs), supervisors, and even C-suite professionals. This approach allows participants to hear and incorporate multiple perspectives into their program plan and gain a better understanding of how every piece of their organization will be involved in their CHW program.

Our expert MHP Salud staff provide recommendations based on past programs and outcomes while guiding you through a series of team-based exercises, including brainstorming, organizational assessments, and other collaborative activities. By the end of the session, you will have the tools that your organization needs to design and implement a successful Community Health Worker program in your community.
