Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association
Commission AmeriCorps State Fixed Amount Grants FY 2012
Wisconsin HealthCorps places individuals who are interested in public health and health care with community-based, health-focused organizations across the state. Members will serve as community health workers, providing culturally competent health education and assistance to individuals in accessing and navigating the health care system. They will become immersed in the communities they serve as well as the public health and health care system in Wisconsin. Our project period will begin in September of 2012 and will end in August of 2015, with the ultimate goals of improving our community's knowledge of healthy behaviors and providing means to access health care to some of Wisconsin's most vulnerable residents.
