Join us for the 7th Annual Northeast Texas Community Health Workers’ Coalition Conference. This one-day conference is designed for Community Health Workers (CHWs), Community Health Worker Instructors (CHWIs), CHW/CHWI supervisors and employers as well as community stakeholders. This year we will offer a limited in-person or virtual conference option. All registered participants will be offered the same information, swag bag, and CEUs. Lunch will be provided for in-person registered participants.
The Northeast Texas CHW Coalition Conference addresses the role CHWs and CHWIs play in creating access to care, reducing costs to care, and promoting healthy and happy communities. Conference planners have recruited subject matter experts from diverse fields to expand the working knowledge for all attendees.
In addition, the conference highlights the importance of how CHWs and CHWIs reduce health disparities; provide a positive return on investment; impact social determinants of health, and display methods of overcoming barriers to CHW/CHWI program success.
