Congratulations Community Health Workers

Congratulations to Sharetta Butcher, Habiba Addo and Jimi Hardin! They recently completed a two-week training to become state-certified Community Health Workers (CHWs). Over the past year, we worked in partnership with the Community Capacitation Center, Urban League of Portland and other community-based organizations to develop and implement this 80-hour CHW training. With a focus on the African American and African communities in Portland, the training provided in-depth sessions on topics such as chronic diseases, nutrition and exercise, cross-cultural communication, leadership and care coordination. Since we opened seven years ago, we have seen great improvements in the health of our patients, especially those with high blood pressure and diabetes. We know we can do even better by using CHWs to assist patients in following their health care plan and to address some of the social issues underlying poor health. Sharetta, Jimi and Habiba are born leaders and perfectly suited for this work. We are excited to watch them grow and to support them in this new role!
