Health Equity Solutions (HES), in partnership with the Community Health Worker Association of Connecticut (CHWACT), organized three virtual community health worker (CHW) forums from August - September of 2021. The purpose of these forums was to hold space for CHWs to gather and share their thoughts, priorities, and concerns for the CHW workforce in the state of Connecticut.

Community awareness of CHWs ranked as the top priority (25%) to advance the workforce, followed by sustainable funding (21%) and coalition building (19%).
