Webinar: Community Health Worker Certification and Licensure (Recorded March 3, 2016)

Part of ASTHO’s Community Health Worker Call Series

Presented by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)

Integrating Community Health Workers (CHWs) into the healthcare workforce is a growing strategy for increasing access and improving population health, while decreasing cost. ASTHO, with funding from HRSA, hosted an interactive panel discussion to highlight issues related to CHW certification and licensure. This webinar provided an overview of state legislative activity related to certification and training of CHWs, described the Community Health Worker Core Consensus (C3) Project, and discussed the pros and cons to certification through facilitated Q&A among panelists and participants.”
