Eliminating social and health inequities by training an exceptional CHW workforce to connect communities, individuals, and service providers.
Center for CHW Research, Outcomes and, Workforce Development
Sinai Urban Health Institute (SUHI) has more than twenty years of experience implementing and evaluating community health worker (CHW) interventions. From this deep expertise SUHI launched the Center for CHW Research, Outcomes, & Workforce Development (CROWD). CROWD’s mission is to eliminate social and health inequities by connecting communities, individuals, and service providers through the integration of a CHW workforce.
CROWD accomplishes its mission by supporting health systems, community-based organizations, health plans, community-focused coalitions, and government agencies in the hiring, training, supervising, and evaluating of CHWs and CHW programs.
The Community Health Worker's Role
Integrating CHWs into an organization’s strategy serves the community through providing important “connector” services and creates economic opportunity by training and employing its members.
What Our Clients Say
"In particular, it enabled our CHWs to better assist community members in navigating the healthcare system and understanding when to access various types of care (i.e., primary care, urgent care, emergency department)."
