Continuing to Develop Resources and Providing Virtual Training
While we continue working for underserved communities, we are also providing support to other organizations and their community health workers. Most recently, we have published a resource on Community Health Workers and COVID-19. The resources explores how Community Health Workers are uniquely equipped to help their communities cope with COVID-19. This resource, like all other resources in our resource portfolio, is available for free download after creating an account on our website.
We are also continuing to offer virtual training sessions for organizations who employ Commmunity Health Workers. These virtual training sessions are fully interactive and cover the same breadth of materials as our in-person training sessions.
If you would like to learn more about how you can schedule a virtual training for your organization, please explore our CHW Training and Consulting services, or email us at email@example.com.
Adopting to New Methods to Support Program Participants
While we are doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19, we are also developing tools to help our Community Health Workers carry out their work remotely. For instance, Community Health Workers with our Juntos Podemos initiative are providing health and nutrition education to families over phone and video. The program is one of many successful MHP Salud initiatives in the Rio Grande Valley. In fact, in 2019, families who enrolled in the program incorporated up to one third more fruits and vegetables in their diet, and increased their amount up daily physical activity by 40%. Positive health outcomes like this are part of the reason why we have served America’s Latino communities for over thirty-five years, and plan to continue doing so for many years to come.
