The Mississippi Community Health Workers Association in partnership with the Mississippi State Department of Health’s Office of Community Health Workers, is proud to present the annual summit, slated for June 12th, 2024, in Biloxi, MS at the Mississippi Community College, located at 420 Debuys Road. Our mission is to catalyze positive transformation within healthcare delivery by elevating the role of Community Health Workers (CHWs) as indispensable superheroes in our communities.

In alignment with recent legislative advancements, our summit will serve as a dynamic platform to explore the implications of new laws that recognize CHWs’ pivotal contributions and pave the way for Medicaid reimbursement. With a focus on enhancing professionalism and efficacy, we are committed to facilitating discussions on the imperative of certification and approved training for CHWs.

Join us as we honor the superhero status of CHWs and collectively strive towards a future where every individual has access to quality healthcare and equitable opportunities for well-being.”

Summit Objectives

Who should attend?

The CHW Summit is a must-attend event for a diverse array of stakeholders deeply invested in community health work. Community Health Workers (CHWs) themselves, the backbone of community health initiatives, will benefit from opportunities to enhance their skills, exchange best practices, and network with peers. CHW Partners, including healthcare providers, public health officials, and community organizations, will gain valuable insights into the pivotal role CHWs play in addressing health disparities and promoting wellness. CHW Supervisors, tasked with overseeing CHW programs and ensuring their effectiveness, will find resources and strategies to support their teams and maximize impact. Additionally, educators, researchers, policymakers, and students interested in advancing community health and health equity will find the summit invaluable for fostering collaboration, sharing knowledge, and driving positive change in their communities.
