The Minnesota Community Health Worker Alliance works with partners to reduce health disparities, achieve better health at a lower cost, and foster healthier communities. The organization serves as a convener, catalyst and expert resource to integrate CHW strategies. Minnesota is the only state in the United States with a statewide competency-based CHW educational program based in accredited post-secondary schools. The 14-credit program is a blend of classroom and field-based learning for those who have at least a high school diploma or GED.
