A Webinar for Providers and Home Visiting Programs

Community Health Workers (CHWs) can serve an important role in improving outcomes for asthma patients.  This free, one-hour webinar will feature presentations by two national experts on the CHW workforce with a focus on research, evidence and program results associated with introducing trained, trusted and culturally-competent CHWs to the asthma team.

The webinar is designed for primary care providers including pediatric clinics, family practice offices, community health centers, and school-based clinics; asthma specialists; home visiting programs and healthy homes initiatives; and those interested in addressing asthma disparities.

Webinar faculty include Dr. James Krieger and Jean Zotter, JD.  Dr. Krieger, MD, MPH, is chief of the Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention Section at Public Health – Seattle & King County and Clinical Professor of Medicine and Health Services at the University of Washington. His asthma-related work focuses on reducing asthma health inequities through environmental and systems change interventions. Ms. Zotter is the Director of the Office of Integrated Policy, Planning and Management in the MA Dept of Public Health Division of Prevention and Wellness. Previously, she led the agency’s Asthma Prevention and Control Program.
