Community Health Worker Day is Tuesday, June 15, 2021!
Dear Colleagues and Friends in the Outreach Community,
Community Health Worker Day is June 15, 2021. On behalf of the Massachusetts Association of Community Health Workers (MACHW), I extend my heartfelt gratitude for the commitment, pride and sheer determination of all of you who have chosen to do this important work in our communities. The last 14 months of the COVID-19 pandemic have been challenging for everyone across the healthcare and social service continuum, but especially for all of you on the front lines. You have helped thousands in our neighborhoods access testing, care and vaccines. Not to mention all the wrap around services you connected for people dealing with job loss, food insecurity and myriad other issues. If I have not said it already or enough, THANK YOU for all that you do.
We have created the guidance below with ideas for employers of CHWs to celebrate and thank you on that day. Please help us make sure that every supervisor, manager, CEO, gets a copy!
Executive Director, MACHW
