FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Community Health Worker Training

HealthVisions Midwest (HVM) completed its first Certified Health Worker Training on April 7, 2017 and a Leadership Training on April 27, 2017. HealthVisions became the first vendor to have a Certified Curriculum for Community Health Workers (CCHW). HVM lost no time in putting its first class together.

Through a partnership with Esperanza Ministries, the Morales group and the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, HVM received Skill Up grant monies to conduct the training. During the week of April 3-7, 2017, 12 Latino women participated in a 40-hour curriculum, were tested and received their certificates. The Skill Up grant also calls for a 30-hour Leadership Training. The CCHWs completed the Leadership portion on April 21, 2017.

Partnering with Work One of Lake County, IN, the trained individuals will enter into a 20-hour “externship” in a healthcare or community health setting. HealthVisions Midwest and Work One are partnering with Franciscan Health to give several of the CCHWs a more extensive externship that may culminate in a job.

HealthVisions Midwest congratulates all of the participants and is grateful for their hard work. Their success is our success.
