CHW Focus Group
On April 10, 2018, ten Community Health Workers representing seven Louisville programs were convened at Metro United Way as a Focus Group to discuss the “Basic-essential needs of the urban community in Louisville”. The group was convened as a sub-group of the LHAB (Louisville Health Advisory Board) to discuss and share observations related to the basic needs, resources, barriers and thoughts for the future. Information from the Focus Group will be used in the development of community improvement strategy.
