The health of our community plays a key role in our personal well-being, which is why the work that community health workers and advocates do is so impactful. Public health warriors are on the front lines serving Richmond City’s vulnerable populations by advocating and educating their communities about their health and helping them navigate to services they need to improve their lives.
With funding from the Wright Center, the VCU Center on Society and Health and Initiatives of Change created an interactive story featuring Richmond’s community health workers and advocates. The story explores their work and their personal stories of overcoming adversity, as well as the importance of fostering community relationships.
