Welcome to the
Community Health Worker Program at CHI

What is a
Community Health Worker?

"The Community Health Workers (CHWs) program represents a development opportunity in a growing career path that now spans beyond the traditional health professional options, creating unique choices for those looking to make a living by helping citizens live healthier lives.  We are thrilled to partner with the Force for Health Academy to bring this curriculum to the public in early 2019."

Pre-Med Student Pathways, Learning Experiences and Development Opportunities

Citizenship Health Institute Partners up with The Force for Health® Academy
to launch CHW courses starting in 2019

“The Community Health Worker, or CHW, is special career opportunity to become “the trusted person in the community, caring for a citizen that needs assistance”.  This is how it was explained to me by an Eskimo leader in Alaska and then later by Dr. Paul Farmer as he described his work in Africa.
 In America, it is becoming a destination on a career pathway towards health care and is a respected professional, paid by hospitals, communities and insurance companies to help in the care of their clients. I have seen first hand how these trained neighbors, save lives, reduce the need for admissions to hospitals and improve the overall quality of life. ” 

Dr. Robert Gillio, Force for Health and Community Health Worker Program, Chief Medical Director
