This evidence-based training resource is designed for CHWs and includes hands on activities and links to relevant websites and products. Health educators, nurses, and other instructors can also use this resource to train CHWs. The training incorporates the latest research, guidelines and prevention strategies for heart disease and stroke. Access this resource and earn free CE.
