Sponsor: CDC Divisions for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention and Diabetes Translation

This webinar will review and discuss the recently released CDC tools and resources and their applicability to statewide infrastructure and sustainability for Community Health Workers (CHWs).

Learning objectives for this webinar are:

  • Discuss availability of recently published Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention/Division of Diabetes Translation (DHDSP/DDT) resources and tools that can support or be integrated into efforts that focus on developing or strengthening statewide infrastructure and sustainability for CHWs.
  • Select tools and resources based on the applicability to one’s own context.
  • Highlight state examples of how tools were, or could be, used for infrastructure and sustainability for CHWs.
