Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has declared August as Community Health Worker Appreciation Month! Community Health Workers are frontline public health workers who have a close understanding of and trusted relationship with the community they serve. WIN Network: Detroit utilizes Community Health Workers in our enhanced model of group prenatal care to co-facilitate group sessions and provide extra one-on-one support for moms’ needs.

WIN Network: Detroit CHWs are members of the Henry Ford Health System Community Health Worker Hub. The Hub serves as the anchoring unit for all of Henry Ford’s CHWs. This month for CHW Appreciation Month we are shouting out all of the CHW Hub CHWs for their dedication and impact to improving community health and health equity! Below are CHW Spotlights for each of the Hub’s CHWs along with an appreciative message from their team members.
