Teams Share Progress at Community Health Team Expansion Pilot Best Practice Sharing

  • 22 Apr 2022

Teams participating in the Community Health Team (CHT) Expansion Pilot came together in April to share successes and challenges so far in year 2 of their work focusing on patients with Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes (CVD/DM). The CHT Expansion Pilot seeks to impact outcomes for participating patients by providing training in CVD/DM for Community Health Workers in CHTs in order to increase self-management education for patients. The 2 teams participating in the pilot, South County Health and East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP), gave updates on the most recent developments in their work. EBCAP has developed a “Healthy Diet Shopping and Meal Planning Guide” and is working with Brown University students to develop a phone app where patients can access the guide. South County Health spoke about their continued work to build on their partnerships with nurse case managers who often refer participants to the program. The team is also working to enhance wellness information packets for program participants and is kicking off a collaboration with the Jonnycake Center to develop take-home meal kits. PowerPoint | Recording
