Community Health Workers Hub

COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkits

As a Community Health Worker, you are a crucial resource for your community. You have already guided many people through difficult health decisions and helped them cut through the clutter of COVID-19 information. Your sacrifice, dedication and commitment has not gone unnoticed.

The PHMC team recognized a gap in COVID-19 resources available to CHWs in our region. That’s why our teams created this project to help support you in your work to address COVID-19 vaccine myths and concerns of your community members.

Below is a comprehensive and easy-to-read COVID-19 toolkit that covers a variety of topics addressing vaccine hesitancy, links for additional resources and free trainings available to you.

Community Health Worker (CHW) Certification Training Program

The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) is offering a FREE, online training program for community health workers (CHWs) to learn strategies, tools, and resources to advance health equity, particularly in light of the lessons learned from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Our 17-week training program will provide you with the skills to excel in providing care coordination for underserved members of our communities, and lead you to becoming a PA-Certified CHW.

Through this series, we intend to create a space where we can facilitate supportive conversations and learning across the community engagement workforce. Each interactive session includes individual and small group workshops to practice key strategies.

AUDIENCE: Community Health Workers (CHWs) across Pennsylvania and Delaware.

DATES: New training dates are added as they are scheduled. Please check this page periodically for opportunities to join us.

Learning Collaborative for CBOs: Emergency Management and Preparedness

In collaboration with the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC), the Healthcare Emergency Management team at Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) will provide a 4-part learning program on the fundamentals of preparedness planning. The program will describe promising practices to promote a system that: protects the health and safety of staff, clients, and facilities; reduces future vulnerability to hazards; builds organizational capacity; and allows you to quickly assess and communicate risks within your respective communities. Our 4-part program is designed to help you improve your prevention, protection, and response strategies and provide you with tools to respond to public health emergencies, including that of COVID-19.
