February 23rd was a very big day for 26 graduates who had undergone 8 weeks of serious training with the Multnomah County Capacitation Team to become Community Health Workers. Words of encouragement were given by Lisa Miller who had emigrated from Haiti at the age of 7 and learned to advocate for herself in the realm of health and education even though she did not speak any English at that time. Today she considers herself to be a “translator” for others who find themselves in a similar situation. Following graduation CHWs will commence their work in their local neighborhoods of Rose Village in Clark County, Kelso in Cowlitz County, and remote areas of Waihkakum County. Coaching and training will continue made possible by a grant from Meyer Memorial.
