Why We're Offering This Scholarship

PHC believes our current or former members who have an excellent understanding of the community in which they live could make an ideal CHW. A CHW can act as a liaison between health, social services, and the community to facilitate access to services and improve the quality, health equity, and cultural competence of service delivery. In 2019, the California Future Health Workforce Commission identified the CHW role as one of the 10 priorities to invest in over a 10-year period to help close California’s health care workforce gaps.

Notes on Your County of Residence

The SCC CHW training program includes both a virtual and an in-person practicum to take place. All interested applicants residing within the counties PHC serves are eligible to participate.
