Community Health Representatives

In Between People CD cover

The In-Between People—Community Health Representatives

Community Health Representatives (CHRs) are uniquely skilled to serve as bridges between the health care system and the communities they serve. Described by some as the "in-between people," CHRs are caring, knowledgeable community members as well as valuable members of the health care team.

This 21-minute DVD was developed by the Native Diabetes Wellness Program to document the critical role of CHRs and other community health workers. Narrated by the president of the IHS Aberdeen Area CHR Association, the film highlights three American Indian communities.

Communities Featured

  • The Round Valley Indian Reservation in Covelo, California
  • The Cheyenne-Arapaho tribe in Concho, Oklahoma
  • The American Indian community in New York, New York
  • Two Latino communities
    • Migrant workers in Owatonna, Minnesota
    • Recent immigrants in Brownsville, Texas
