More Than Health Care V: Tying It All Together
Wednesday, June 16, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm EDT
Over the last year, the More Than Health Care Series has explored diverse challenges and unique opportunities for patients and providers alike at the intersection of HIV, HCV, and substance use. For the series capstone, join for a presentation and panel discussion about the glue that often holds our care continuum together: community health workers. These unique roles can take on many different titles and responsibilities, but all center the patient and the idea of meeting them where they are. Community health workers continue to be imperative in the fight to end these epidemics. Session V will explore their critical role and how to effectively deploy and support them in your organizations.
