While a number of agencies across Florida employ Community Health Workers (CHWs), there had not been a focused, statewide, multi-agency effort to promote the valuable work of CHWs. The Florida Department of Health invited leaders from a variety of community and health service entities and established partnerships with organizations across the state. T he work groups established core elements of a CHW training curriculum and focused on promoting the statewide coalition and recognizing CHWs through educating leaders and establishing a branding strategy. A statewide certification program is now in place, with over 600 CHWs having earned certification. To learn more please visit .
