MiCHWA CHW Instructor Training Cohort 1 (pilot)
The first cohort of the MiCHWA CHW Instructor Training Program was successfully completed as of September 2017. Instructor-Trainees completed the 2.5-day in-person training where they received instruction on how to deliver the MiCHWA CHW Curriculum. After all five Instructor-Trainees completed the in-person training, each Instructor-Trainee planned and instructed one full MiCHWA CHW Training cohort. These trainings took place in Battle Creek, Flint, Dearborn, and Marquette. Congratulations to our newest MiCHWA-trained CHW Instructors! MiCHWA also thanks the MiCHWA Master Trainers (Rebeca Guzman and Susie Williamson) for their expertise in teaching and supporting the new MiCHWA CHW Instructors.
