Project ECHO: CHWs Community of Practice Flyer

Enhance your skills and knowledge as a CHW through a series of engaging sessions led by subject matter experts. The CHWs Community of Practice series will create a dynamic platform for sharing experiences, insights, and best practices to better serve our communities.

If you have a real-life case study from your experiences as a CHW, submit it here to allow peers to learn and discuss it during the sessions. The case study will guide the topics and discussions, offering valuable insights to fellow CHWs.
