This is the final session in a 4-part series focused on the importance of Community Health Workers to address the social determinants of health.
Join us for a presentation from Juniper Network to learn how they have integrated programming into care settings using Community Health Workers trained in fall prevention programs.
Speakers will highlight how Community Health Workers offer social determinants of health screenings, care navigation, health promotion programming, and referrals for falls prevention programs and other long-term services in supports.
Community Health Workers (CHWs) serve as a connection between medical and social services and their communities. CHWs typically come from the community they work in, and they may be called different titles such as peer health educators, lay health advocates, community health representatives, or promotoras. Community-based organizations are also using CHWs to screen for social determinants of health and to deliver evidence-based programs, such as the Chronic Disease Self-Management Programs.
