About Us

The Center for Community Health Alignment (CCHA) is a community focused organization within the UofSC Arnold School of Public Health. Our network of partners work alongside community leaders to align efforts addressing health inequities in South Carolina.

Our training team facilitates CHW core competency trainings that follow nationally recognized best practices from the Community Health Worker Core Consensus Project (C3 Project), providing a meaningful framework to begin and/or excel as a professional CHW. Our team also crafts curriculums for diverse CHW trainings focused on topics such as oral health, health and racial equity, CHW supervision, and chronic disease prevention and management.

Additionally, we provide technical assistance to meet the needs of a variety of stakeholders. Our field-tested community-responsive toolkits focus on CHW workforce implementation, social determinants of health screenings, CHW program evaluation, and addressing perinatal health disparities.
