Volunteer Health Advisors (VHAs)

If you are interested in helping to improve the health of communities in this area, the VHA program is a great way to make a difference. VHAs act as a bridge between the community and CHA. They are respected community health workers who have a close understanding of the community they serve. The Volunteer Health Advisor (VHA) program trains and supports volunteers to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate community education for underserved and hard-to-reach populations. This work leads to better access to care and better health, helping to reduce disparities in health care and health outcomes in under-served communities.
