Northwest Technical College faculty and staff will present at the Rural Minnesota Community Health Worker Conference at the Hampton Inn and Suites scheduled for Oct. 21, 2019.
The daylong conference is intended for employers and potential employers of community health workers and will provide community health workers with opportunities to network with colleagues and learn strategies for advocating for their own roles in the health care system, at work and in their communities.
The objective of the conference is to create awareness of the impact of community health workers on health, third-party billing, sustainability efforts and community collaboration opportunities.
