CHCANYS Public Health Corps - Half-Year
CHCANYS Public Health Corps is a workforce development program dedicated to assisting community health centers in addressing COVID-19 response. Members perform a Half-Year (900 hours, 5-6 months) of service at community health centers, where they work to improve and expand the delivery of services at their sites. Our program prepares its members for careers in community-based primary health care. Members perform direct service with patients thereby filling service gaps, increasing access to and improving utilization of health center’s services. The mission of CHCANYS Public Health Corps is to assure the provision of culturally appropriate preventive and primary health care to medically under-served populations and communities with a focus on connecting patients to health education and treatment. Health centers diagnose and treat budding health problems early, prevent unnecessary utilization of hospital emergency rooms and inpatient beds, and help cut health care costs. CHCANYS Public Health Corps consists of 40 members working full time in various community health centers across New York City. Each member works on a service project that reflect the needs of their health center and the objectives of Public Health Corps, with a focus on COVID-19 pandemic response.
