CHWs Take Action to Promote Heart Health in the Community

Our CHWs are trained to use these materials to help community residents improve their quality of life by adopting heart healthy behaviors.

With the help of the Initiative, CHWs are able to:

  • Help families understand their risk for developing heart disease.
  • Help community members get appropriate screenings and referrals for health and social services.
  • Track an individual’s progress toward meeting health goals.
  • Hold workshops and group discussions to learn about ways the community can promote heart health. 
  • Teach people how to prepare heart healthy meals, get more physical activity, and stop smoking.
