COMMUNITY HEALTH RESPRESENTATIVE PROGRAM

Mission:

Provide outreach health care services and health promotion/disease prevention services to American Indians/Alaska Natives within their communities.

Goals & Objectives:

The CHR Program was implemented in 1968 to improve the health knowledge, attitudes and practices of Indian people by promoting supporting, and assisting the Indian Health Service in delivering a total health care program. The efforts of CHR program staff have produced an American Indian service delivery system, which provides for follow-up and continued contact with the health care delivery system at the community level, thereby meeting the most basic needs of the American Indian. The goal of the CHR Program is to address health care needs through the provision of community-oriented primary care services, including traditional Native concepts in multiple settings, utilizing community-based, well-trained, medically-guided heath care workers. Sac & Fox Tribe Community Health Representatives are members of the Aberdeen Area CHR Association. In addition, health related workshops and in-services are provided for CHR’s to continue their education.
