Iowa CHW Scan

Over the course of 2021 and 2022, the Iowa Department of Public Health (now Iowa Health and Human Services) Office of Rural Health commissioned an environmental assessment of the community health worker environment in Iowa. The University of Iowa Prevention Research Center for Rural Health (PRC) subcontracted with ICCC to partner on this work. The work involved surveys of CHWs and organizations employing CHWs, interviews, development of outreach materials, and creation of a list of Iowa organizations employing CHWs.
