The Community Health Worker Common Core (C3) Project is led by the University of Texas Project on CHW Policy and Practice in cooperation with the National Areas Health Education Centers Organization and the APHA CHW Section.bFollowing a participatory process to engage CHWs and other stakeholders in the C3 Project focused on the developing contemporary CHW Roles and Competencies recommendations, the C3 Project team must now look at ways findings can best contribute to the advancement of the CHW field. In particular, the C3 Project team seeks to support the development of CHW self-determination in the evolution of CHW practice, CHW educational resources, as well as agency and public policies that impact that practice. The C3 Project team will look to session participants to take part in an interactive dialogue about ways in which the C3 Project’s findings being released (tentatively) in fall of 2015, following the review of findings by US CHW network leaders, can best be incorporated for use in the field. As a part of that discussion, session leaders will facilitate a conversation about how recommended Roles and Competencies can be regularly maintained and refined by national, state and local CHW leadership. The C3 Project’s CHW Fellows and CHW consultants will play a prominent role in the presentation. CHWs participating in the C3 Project including CHW Fellows and consultants will be featured as the leaders of this presentation. This is one of three presentations proposed on the C3 Project.
