SB 104: Expanding Public Health Networks Capacity

SB 104: Expanding Public Health Networks Capacity

New Futures supports SB 104.

SB 104 would add a community health worker (CHW) to each of the state’s thirteen public health networks. CHWs are trusted members of the communities in which they work,

 and they share an unusually close understanding of the communities they serve. This trusting relationship enables the worker to serve as a liaison and intermediary between health, social services and the community to facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of public health service delivery.
