Heffernan joins National Readers Panel for Community Health Worker recommendations

February 11, 2015

Dawn Heffernan, Director of the New England Public Health Training Center’s UMass Local Performance Site, recently joined a readers panel organized by the Community Health Worker Common Core (C3) Project. Coordinated by University of Texas Institute for Health Policy, the C3 project is creating a document that will define community health worker (CHW) roles and skills, based on feedback from experts including Heffernan and others on the readers panel. These recommendations will then be available as a resource in the design of training curricula and CHW practice guidelines. Read more about C3 here.
