The Nebraska Community Health Worker Association was founded in January of 2014 in an effort to provide CHWs with recognition for their work throughout Nebraska. The mission of this association is to use CHWs to increase patient access to appropriate medical care and lower overall medical costs. CHWs are outlined as liaisons that bridge the gap between the underserved population and clinicians and ultimately improving health outcomes.
