Describes the role of CROWD, the benefit of CHWs, and services CROWD offers to help other organizations develop and implement CHW solutions.

CROWD is part of Sinai Urban Health Institute (SUHI) and Sinai Health System. SUHI works in partnership with community members and organizations to document disparities and improve health and wellness in vulnerable neighborhoods.  SUHI conducts health disparities research, develops innovative community health interventions, delivers (via CROWD) community health worker (CHW) training and consultation, and provides a broad scope of evaluation services. CROWD grew from SU Hi’s vast leadership implementing and evaluating CHW interventions, and in the hiring, training and deployment of CHWs. Through CROWD, SUHI supports health plans, health systems, organizations, and research studies in hiring, training, supervising and evaluating CHWs.
