Community health workers (CHWs) can play a critical role in promoting healthy living by educating community members about heart disease and stroke prevention and by helping people understand the importance of health care self-management, especially in underserved communities throughout the United States.
The Community Health Worker’s Sourcebook: A Training Manual for Preventing Heart Disease and Stroke serves two purposes: 1) as an instruction manual for training CHWs and 2) as a reference and a resource for CHWs working with community members. The sourcebook may be used as an instruction manual by college instructors, health educators, nurses, and other health care professionals at health departments, community clinics, community colleges, and other organizations and agencies.
