9TH ANNUAL ORCHWA CONFERENCE: UNITY IN UNCERTAINTY (VIRTUAL)
August 26 & 27, 2021
9am - 2pm
Keynote speaker Roberto Dansie
ORCHWA’s Annual Conference is a signature event that brings together CHWs, CHW supervisory staff, health systems, community-based organizations, other traditional health workers, and CHW allies to discuss current issues impacting the CHW workforce. This event creates opportunities for continued learning and professional development, while promoting the impactful and amazing role CHWs play in public health, health systems and the broader community.
We will come together to share how we have learned to adapt to a changing landscape and implement new ways of sharing information to meet the needs of CHWs and the communities they serve. The events of 2020 further highlighted existing inequities and the power of CHWs to creatively support community resilience. This conference, Unity in Uncertainty, will intentionally address the importance of a unified and sustainable workforce.
