Hep Free NYC Community Health Workers Committee
We are pleased to announce the establishment of Hep Free NYC Community Health Workers (CHWs) Committee. Continuing the strong foundational work done by all the CHWs advocates in New York City and beyond, the work of this subcommittee will focus on organizing community efforts to standardize roles across disciplines and secure stable funding for patient navigation through the CHW model, as seen in other states.
Community Health Workers have been an integral part of the healthcare system, not only in states where they are certified and can be paid by insurance but also in New York. Their work is well-documented for increasing access to healthcare, improving the quality of health care, reducing health disparities, and reducing health care costs. To this end, our purpose is to work toward ways to make the roles of CHWs sustainable and rewarding for both CHWs and the communities they serve.
The first Hep Free NYC Community Health Workers Committee will be held on Thursday, September 21, 2017 from 3.30 pm to 5 pm. Please RSVP.
