Community Health Workers (CHW)
A community health worker is a trusted member that has a close understanding of the ethnicity, language, socio-economic status, and life experiences of the community served. (www.dshs.tx.gov).
Community health workers provide social support, participate in clinical research, provide community health and information, and patient navigation and follow up.
