In the Community Roundup: Community health workers facilitate important health conversations

Submitted by xlschwa on Thu, 09/01/2022 - 9:21 am

Engaging in meaningful conversations is an important part of bringing public health to the community. That is why in addition to providing information and resources, the Health Department's community health workers take time to talk with people, not just to them. That is why our team is on the scene each day at locations across the community, getting to know people and addressing their concerns.

Around the Community in June

Even on the hottest summer days, community health workers were outside. Equipped with sunglasses, water, and loads of sunscreen, they attended community celebrations, food distribution events, and farmers markets, bringing health conversations and resources to the people of Fairfax. 

Community health workers attended community celebrations for Juneteenth. They spoke to attendees about health topics, handed out flyers, and of course partook in some of the fun.
