Our Mission

To promote and sustain the integration of community health workers (CHWs) into Michigan’s health and human service systems
through coordinated changes in policy and workforce development.

MiCommunity: Southeast Michigan Beacon Community

The MiCommunity Campaign features CHWs where they work and the people they work with. This is the second video of many that will highlight a particular agency's CHWs. Focusing on the Southeast Michigan Beacon Community's outreach to diabetes patients, the video lets a patient tell her story of working with a CHW. Watch for more videos coming soon. Until then, enjoy learning more about Michigan's great communities and the CHWs that serve them.
