About us

The Penn Center for Community Health Workers (CHWs) is a community-academic collaboration funded by the University of Pennsylvania Health System. CHWs are trained laypeople who share life circumstances (race, socioeconomic status, language, etc.) with their patients. They are "natural helpers" within the community. The Center has received national attention as a leader in advancing evidence-based models for community health worker (CHW) care, and has been featured in media such as the Washington Post, National Public Radio (NPR), and Forbes magazine.
