Event description
9th Annual Oregon Community Health Workers Association Conference: Unity in Uncertainty, August 26 & 27, from 9am - 2pm, Online

About this event

ORCHWA’s Annual Conference is a signature event that brings together CHWs, CHW supervisory staff, health systems, community-based organizations, other traditional health workers, and CHW allies to discuss current issues impacting the CHW workforce. This event creates opportunities for continued learning and professional development, while promoting the impactful and amazing role CHWs play in public health, health systems and the broader community.

We will come together to share how we have learned to adapt to a changing landscape and implement new ways of sharing information to meet the needs of CHWs and the communities they serve. The events of 2020 further highlighted existing inequities and the power of CHWs to creatively support community resilience. This conference, Unity in Uncertainty, will intentionally address the importance of a unified and sustainable workforce.

This is a multi-day virtual conference. Each session will allow for questions and answers at the end. CEUs will be available for this conference.

Join us for exciting topics and keynote speaker - Roberto Dansie

Roberto, at an early age was introduced to the healing traditions of his ancestors, the Toltec and Maya Indians, by his grandmother, Exiquia. Since then, Roberto has been developing the field of Cultural Wisdom, integrating the best of the past, with the best of the present to promote growth, wellbeing, creativity and wisdom in individuals and communities throughout the world..
