Iowa’s First C.O.R.E. Training Program for Community Health Workers

This was the first ever C.O.R.E. Training for CHWs held  last March 2017 hosted by the Iowa Chronic Care Consortium (ICCC) and made possible in part by a grant from the Mid-Iowa Health Foundation.

C.O.R.E. stands for “Coaching, Outreach, Relationship, Engagement”. This year’s training was “intended to gather current frontline health workers for learning, information sharing, and networking.”

More information can be found in the summary document attached below. You’ll also find a copy of their training agenda used last March.
