The Summit creates a venue for CHWs to prepare and share presentations on the work they are doing in their communities; begin to formalize the position within Illinois by introducing a standard CHW training curriculum, and information for a statewide CHW registry; and recognize CHWs, supervisors, and employers/payees who have gone above and beyond in their communities doing this vital work. The Summit will highlight a variety of topics pertaining to CHW work and include a diverse range of presenters.
