- Important new deadline:
- May 15th – This year we are required to make sure all colon cancer screening services, including colonoscopies, are complete by the end of June. Therefore, all FIT/FOBT test results must be received by May 15th in order to schedule follow-up colonoscopies where needed. Any received after this date will be put on a wait list and cannot be guaranteed service.

- Because of billing code changes, new forms will be coming soon. Make sure to download from the website to insure you are using the correct ones.

Community Health Worker Training
CHW is a title used to encompass a variety of roles for individuals within medical settings and in the community. Primarily, these individuals are trusted members of the community who have a unique understanding of the people they work with and can help them overcome barriers to important aspects of health, such as understanding and accessing information and medical care.
CHWs are trained through a FREE eight-week course that combines in-person and online instruction to provide the basic skills needed by all CHWs. Once completed, graduates then have FREE access to additional health-specific, web-based trainings that can be tailored to their needs and specific work.
The next training starts July 14, 2015
