Job Description: The Community Health Worker (CHW) works directly with patients, the health care team, and the broader community to improve health outcomes for identified at-risk populations. The CHW is an entry level position and, as part of a 18 month grant funded project, will have the opportunity to receive formal training, while employed, to complete a community health worker certificate program as well as ongoing on-the-job training and support.
A CHW is a trusted member of the community sometimes referred to as “peers with lived experience” who relate well to residents that live in challenging circumstances. With ongoing support and training, CHWs effectively empower others in the community through sharing of health information and facilitating linkages to community resources and health and social services. In addition, CHWs are poised to mobilize communities to create and sustain positive change that support ongoing health and wellness at a population level.
The CHW will work within the Alexander Valley Healthcare Clinic (AVHC) and in the community as part of the population health and clinical team. The primary role of the CHW will be to provide information, support and basic health screenings to AVHC patients.. As a member of the Health Care Team, the CHW will perform a wide variety of tasks that encourage health and wellness in low-income individuals and their families through education, prevention, and linkage to health and community resources and services as needed. The CHW will also provide home and community support to identify resources and interventions that may be helpful for maintaining a healthy home environment and community.
