Focus On . . . Clinical Preventive Services

Clinical preventive services, such as blood pressure and cholesterol screening, are very effective in preventing disease or detecting disease early, when treatment is more effective. Many community members have limited access to preventive services and basic health information. Community health workers help to bridge the gap between underserved communities and health care providers.

CINCH INITIATIVE: COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS

CINCH works with various community groups to increase access to free health education, referrals, and preventive screening by connecting community members with well-trained, culturally competent community health workers.
