Family Care Health Centers Community Health Team

Our Community Health Workers

Family Care Health Centers has a diverse team of caring individuals committed to helping St. Louis community members get the medical care they need and deserve.

What is a Community Health Worker?

A community health worker is a frontline public health worker who is a trusted member of and/or has an unusually close understanding of the community served. This trusting relationship enables the worker to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and the community to facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery.

Family Care Health Centers is incredibly honored to have the Community Health Worker of the Year work for us, for our patients, for our community. Hanna Oberg (right) is 2023’s #CHW of the Year.

Additionally, 2022’s CHW of the Year was LaReecia Carter (left), who is our CHW Supervisor!

THANK YOU both for all you do for St. Louis communities!
