Detroit Community Health Worker Project

Community Health Workers (CHWs) are frontline public health professionals who facilitate access to health and social services, typically serving the communities they call their own. In partnership with community organizations, Medicaid-managed care plans, and the Detroit Health Department, IHPI is helping to develop and assess the impact of an innovative CHW demonstration project in the city's Cody Rouge neighborhood. The program focuses on improving health service utilization, health status, quality of life, and reducing gaps in care, with the ultimate goal of improving the health of Detroit residents.
