Community Health Workers Lecture: Their Role and Impact in Massachusetts

Monday February 28th, 11am-12pm at Sackler 812

Community Health Advocates at Tufts invites you to join us in welcoming Gail Hirsch, MEd from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) and Cindy Martin, MPH from the Massachusetts Association of Community Health Workers (MACHW) to TUSM.

Who are community health workers (CHWs)? What do they do? What are the defining issues of CHWs as a workforce? How can we better understand and support community health workers in order to improve health outcomes in Massachusetts?
Ms. Hirsch and Ms. Martin will offer their expertise and insight to answer these questions and more! Join us to learn more about CHWs’ role and impact.
