IL Community Health Worker Advisory Board Listening Sessions

The Illinois Community Health Worker (CHW) Advisory Board was created as a result of legislation passed in 2014.   The Board is charged with advising the Governor, IDPH and the IL General Assembly on all matters impacting CHWs across the state.  Over the past year the Board has worked to develop draft recommendations related to: the training and certification process, core competencies, workforce development and financing and reimbursement. We are holding a series of listening sessions across the state in order to receive feedback on the draft recommendations.  If you are a CHW, employ CHWs or are just interested in joining the conversation I encourage you to attend. There will also be a session in Lake County, so check back on the IL Department of Public Health website for that announcement:
