Community Health Worker Program
Project EMPOWER is a free program of the Sinclair Health Clinic striving to Empower a Healthy Community utilizing Community Health Workers (CHWs) to:
Connect program participants to community resources
Support in social determinants of health
(i.e. employment, housing, transportation, access to food and needed social services)
Educate regarding chronic disease prevention and healthy living
Clients engage in weekly visits with their CHW- either in their home, at the clinic, or at a location of the client’s choosing (ex. public library)- working towards goals the client sets with their CHW aiming towards improved health and wellness.
Project EMPOWER is coordinated by a Registered Nurse who assists with the client’s plan of care and medication reconciliation with the goal of increasing treatment adherence and improving overall health and well-being.
