West Virginia Community Health AmeriCorps Developer (WVCHAD)
AmeriCorps members serve as Community Health Workers throughout West Virginia. AmeriCorps members will educate and encourage those with at risk behaviors while assisting individuals to improve their quality of life by making positive lifestyle changes. They will work with individuals, families, and communities. The lifestyle changes could cover: nutrition, physical activities for all ages, personal-home-community safety, mental health promotion, and consequences of unprotected sex. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will help to build a referral system with local clinics/physicians to encourage them to refer to programs offered and to assist participants in reporting results of the program outcomes back to their physicians. Our efforts will include the focus area of Healthy Futures including health screenings, health education, and disaster preparedness.
