MACHW Hosted the First New England Regional CHW Summit
Community health workers and stakeholders from all six New England states participated in the first New England Regional Community Health Worker Summit. Fifty attendees participated in the Summit including individual CHWs, CHW associations, state and local health departments, funders, payers and CHW trainers among others. This was the first gathering of its kind in New England.
The two-day summit provided opportunities to learn about CHW initiatives in New England and nationally. Participants strategized methods to remain connected, including the creation of a New England CHW Coalition. The Summit was hosted by MACHW and supported in part by HHS Region 1, Office of Minority Health.
