Program participant testimonial
"I would say everyone should participate in a program like this because a lot of it is basic knowledge that everyone should know in order to be healthy and help our friends and family be healthy. Not everyone will be interested in being an active CHW but this program really opens up your eyes to the world of health and how it operates in our society and world. I feel I gained a lot of perspective."
"I enjoyed the videos in the power points and the case studies because it provided us with the closest to real-life exposure to real situations. I don’t usually enjoy role play but that also helped me practice and improve my motivational interviewing."
"I would say the CHW program is a great [program] which will allow student to grow and share their innovative ideas in a classroom setting."
"Assignments that were most effective were the brochure that we had to create and share with the class. It enhanced my understanding of Hypertension because the assignment put us in a teachers position."
