With provisional state approval process for established CHW training on its way, it came as no surprise to MACHW that this work was exemplary. MACHW was so happy to share in the excitement of their graduation day, and so very proud of all, too! This is certainly a momentous occasion worthy of celebration. Only the few truly dedicated individuals are able to complete this rigorous training and serve their clients and families in the community. Your commitment to expand your professional knowledge base and competencies through education is to be commended, and you are an inspiration to the field!

MACHW also thanks CHEC-Boston, CHEC-Lowell, and the Center for Health Impact in Worcester for working so hard to get the training programs out on time. They all did an amazing job and deserve the highest praise. They are amongst the few training programs throughout the state offering core competency training. With such a widely recognized reputation for sharp talent, they have what it takes to meet with continued success on the CHWs’ career paths. Keep up the good work!

Many thanks to Durrell Fox, co-founder of MACHW and keynote speaker at CHEC-Lowell’s graduation ceremony, in which he spoke about the history of the workforce, and how his experiences and personal life correlated to his many advocacy efforts. The points Durrell touched upon, e.g. keeping those “compromisos”, advocating on the redesign of MassHealth contracts, or learning about national projects like that of the C3 Project, reminded us of the importance in continuing to bring about awareness of the role of CHWs in the changing face of the health care reform and the development of statewide Certification. There is no doubt that we will all be speaking of your recent achievements for some time to come and that the effects of your accomplishments make a difference in the community and the field.

Please accept our best wishes and success in strengthening the professional development of the CHW workforce!
