CSC Community Health Worker (MACON)
CSC Support Group 4 Kids and state partners are hitting the streets to improve the lives of people living with Sickle Cell Disease.
With the support of funding from the U.S. Health Services Resource Administration (HRSA), SCFG is partnering with the Sickle Cell Disease Association of American (SCDAA) to send community health workers (CHW) into the community to help adolescents and adults who have sickle cell disease but do not have a regular healthcare provider for sickle cell find a medical home.
CHWs are community members who help individuals with sickle cell adopt healthy behaviors. The CHWs are selected from the community and are trained and certified to service the sickle cell community. They provide services to improve the health
information on “Get Connected”.
CHWs conduct community outreach, including home visits, to promote, maintain, and improve the health of individuals living with sickle cell disease.
In addition to serving individuals in Metropolitan Atlanta, SCFG have CHW’s serving in Columbus and Augusta.
