Webinar Series: Engaging Community Health Workers to Reduce Chronic Diseases and Promote Community-Clinical Linkages

Join ASTHO and CDC for a webinar to learn how Prevention Research Centers in Arizona, North Carolina, and New York are engaging community health workers to reduce chronic diseases and health disparities.

This webinar will highlight research and tools for engaging community health workers (CHWs) to prevent chronic diseases, including the University of Arizona's work to create best practices for CHWs in clinical settings. Researchers from the University of North Carolina will also discuss how CHWs, health departments, and primary care clinics are collaborating to reduce cardiovascular diseases in rural communities. Finally, a presenter from the New York University School of Medicine will describe how the center is building on the Million Hearts initiative by integrating CHW and physician support models.

  • Understand how PRC community-based research can be translated into prevention programs.
  • Learn how state health departments can partner with PRCs to improve linkages between clinical care and community preventive health services.
  • Gain ideas for working with CHWs to address chronic diseases and health disparities.
