2021 Southeast CHW Network Summit

The annual summit provides a space for individuals within the CHW Network to gather together to acknowledge the impact of the work they do in their communities, share best practices, and address challenges and barriers. 

Funding support

The SE CHW Network aims to strengthen capacity building through the sponsorship by the Johnson & Johnson Our Race to Health Equity Campaign.  This initiative aims to address health inequities for people of color through a culturally diverse and inclusive workforce, investments in culturally competent community care models to close the racial mortality gap, and utilize their partnership network to improve social determinants of health.

Sub-grants to CHW networks throughout the Southeast
