Northampton Community College (NCC) is offering free virtual community health worker (CHW) career information sessions on November 8 at 10 a.m.. and on November 10 at 1:00 p.m..

As a CHW, you will help people overcome barriers to care by connecting them to their local community resources. The Affordable Care Act stipulates that CHWs must be members of health care teams in patient-centered medical homes or accountable care organizations, making it a growing field.
