Community Health Worker Policy Leadership and the COVID-19 Pandemic
Brenda assisted the National Association of Community Health Workers in answering questions on what kind of leadership training and/or mentoring would be necessary to increase CHW participation in policy-making and what information lawmakers need to know about CHWs especially in light of the COVID pandemic. Brenda developed an semi-structured interview guide based off NACHW’s March 2020 survey of CHWs and then conducted, transcribed, and coded interviews with 10 community health workers that explored factors promoting and/or obstructing engagement in policy-making and advocacy.
