The Strategic Champions: Community Health Workers Promoting Heart Health Project
The Strategic Champions project was brought to Massachusetts by a partnership of the Central Massachusetts Area Health Education Center’s Outreach Worker Training Institute (OWTI), the Boston Public Health Commission’s Community Health Education Center (CHEC), the Massachusetts Association of Community Health Workers (MACHW) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) Office of Community Health Workers.
The project goal was to deliver CHW-instructed, culturally relevant heart health education into Latino and African American communities experiencing higher rates of cardiovascular disease. The timeline for the project was April 2012 - July 2013.
