​Join Rhode Island Department of Health and Rhode Island College for the Community Health Worker Conference, where we celebrate the invaluable contributions of Community Health Workers (CHWs) in Rhode Island. Dedicated to advocating for the profession and championing health equity, this conference serves as a rallying point for CHWs to connect, collaborate, and pave the way toward the future we want for all in Rhode Island. Through engaging sessions and dynamic discussions, we’ll elevate the vital role of CHWs and provide a platform to honor our tireless efforts. From professional development workshops to policy discussions that center community voice, attendees will gain invaluable insights aligned with the core competency domain required for Rhode Island CHW certification.

​This conference is more than just a gathering—it’s a catalyst for positive change, empowering CHWs to drive impactful interventions, advocate for their communities, and shape the landscape of health in Rhode Island.
