Community health workers serve vulnerable populations on the front lines.
They go out into the community, develop trusted relationships with people dealing with homelessness, food insecurity, health issues or substance use disorders, and help facilitate access to health and social services.
The University of New Mexico Community Health Worker Initiative (CHWI) unit designs, evaluates and implements projects made to promote health equity and increase the well-being of all New Mexicans.
