On June 21, 2017 IPHI collaborated with the Baltimore City Health Department, and Baltimore Area Health Education Center (BAHEC) to co-sponsor the Baltimore City Chapter of the Maryland Statewide CHW Network’s first citywide CHW Forum at the Vollmer Center at Cylburn Arboretum.
More than 120 CHWs, CHW allies, and supporters attended. Throughout the day speakers addressed a range of issue including:
- CHWs Helping Patients with Hypertension & Diabetes
- Tobacco Use and Heart Disease – A Historical Perspective on Tobacco Use and African Americans
- Motivational Interviewing
- Community Health Workers Association – Baltimore Chapter Presentation
It was a great day to recognize the hard work CHWs contribute to fighting disease and health disparities in Baltimore.
