VOA-Midstates Determined Health AmeriCorps
 
 
 
Determined Health employs Community Health Workers that educate and engage residents of Louisville's West End neighborhoods. They provide grassroots outreach designed to address the root causes of health disparities and inequities by focusing on the social determinants of health and connecting area residents with access to high-quality health care. The innovative new program employs trained CHWs who engage with the residents at increased risk of poor health by providing care coordination, offering support for chronic disease management, navigation of community resources, empowering individuals to make health decisions, community outreach, and increased health education. CHWs will coordinate health care services with health care teams to achieve successful health outcomes for participants. VOA goals for the program include reducing health disparities in Louisville, bridging the gap in care, and improving health outcomes for all program participants.
