Community health workers (CHW) can be vital to ensuring individuals and communities accessing the full range of healthcare and social services they need. Housing authorities and their health partners are increasingly looking for ways to train and deploy CHWs in their communities to help improve health outcomes, improve satisfaction with care, lower healthcare costs, and minimize health disparities. This session will explore several PHAs training residents to become CHWs. Participants will learn of the deliberative process undertaken to design proofs of concept that feature cross-sector partnerships, metrics determination, data collection and sharing approaches, evaluation planning, anticipated outcomes and strategies for replicability.
