Through the personal journey of navigating through trauma, violence, addiction, and poverty there is hope at the end of the tunnel. These stories, from the block to the board, are often romanticized when in reality it requires daily work and consistency in moving forward and upward. Most importantly it requires the development of a support system. This is where community health models come into play. Community Health Work looks at the whole self and supporting individuals in navigating through social determinants of health. It is a critical model we have today to affect sustainable changes in our society; it is also one of the most undervalued.
Beatriz LeBron is our opening keynote speaker on Friday, October 28th.
