Health & Medicine and Partners Share Updates on CHW Pilot

September 7, 2022

In 2017, Community Memorial Foundation (CMF) and Healthy Communities Foundation (HCF) collaborated to fund models of health care delivery that utilize Community Health Workers (CHWs), thus improving access to care and growing the health care workforce in the western suburbs of Chicago. CMF and HCF funded five organizations with diverse missions and target populations to address the Regional Health and Human Services Agenda priority to create communities with accessible, high quality health and human services for all. As part of this pilot project, CHWs and supervisors participated in a learning collaborative to facilitate engagement and content experts to strengthen participant skills and knowledge.

The Community Health Worker Pilot is supported by Community Memorial Foundation and Healthy Communities Foundation and coordinated by Health & Medicine Policy Research Group, with Sinai Urban Health Institute serving as trainer and evaluator.

We are pleased to share findings from the first three years of the pilot! View the PDF here.
