April 26 event will celebrate, educate, and inspire those who serve a critical role in our community’s health care continuum
LAS VEGAS, January 11, 2024 – Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican Hospitals invites professional Community Health Workers from across southern Nevada to take part in an in-person education and recharge event, April 26 at San Martin Hospital. The experience is free of charge, but participation is limited to 50 attendees.
Community Health Workers (CHW) play an integral role in southern Nevada’s health care community, especially in health care access, but also providing myriad assistance to an unimaginably wide range of people in our community.
From the elderly and at-risk communities, to those in need of assistance managing chronic disease like dementia, diabetes, or cardiac conditions, CHWs are there to offer education, advice, and understanding. They can also be called to provide advice on many other topics, like diet and nutrition, prescription management, and guidance for pregnant women and new mothers on infant care, perinatal issues, and breastfeeding. CHWs are found wherever people need health care assistance.
“Like many careers in the healthcare profession, becoming a Community Health Worker is often a calling,” said Mark Domingo, Community Health Manager for Dignity Health Nevada. “We’ve planned April 26 as a day of learning, networking, and inspiration. We look forward to sharing best practices and strategies among colleagues from across the valley, with hopes of improving healthcare access and outcomes for all of our clients.”
The Community Health Worker Summit will include engaging presentations, interactive workshops, and dynamic panel discussions.
Mr. Domingo added, “Participants will connect with fellow professionals and enhance their skills in the field of community health work. They will leave this experience with valuable insights and practical tools to make a difference in our community.
Don't miss this opportunity. Register now for a day of growth, collaboration, and empowerment.
