Carolina Community Health Workers Summit and Graduation
El Centro Hispano (ECH), is proud to present the First Annual Community Health Worker Forum in North Carolina: Building Stronger, Healthier Communities Through Collaboration
Community health workers, advocates, colleagues, and partners are coming together on August 12 from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm at the Wake Commons Building to participate in the inaugural Community Health Worker Forum in the state of North Carolina.
Organized in collaboration with Wake County Health & Human Services-HealthLit4Wake and LiveWell Wake, this event aims to celebrate and amplify the contributions of Community Health Workers in fostering healthier communities.
The forum, held under the theme “Community Health Workers Building Community Health and Wellness,” promises a wealth of insights and learning opportunities to explore the transformational role of Community Health Workers as change agents in North Carolina.
Throughout the day, we will delve into concurrent sessions, fostering discussions on essential topics like health coverage assurance, care management strategies, centering pregnancy for women of color, addressing HIV/STIs for the Latino community, and nurturing mental well-being. Our workshops, available in both English and Spanish, reflect our commitment to inclusivity and the empowerment of diverse communities.
