  • CHCSEK Healthy Heart Ambassador Program Sucess Story

      CHCSEK logo

    In late 2021, Community Health Centers of Southeast Kansas (CHCSEK), headquartered in Pittsburg, was awarded grant funding through the KDHE Community Health Worker Teams Program.  The Kansas Healthcare Collaborative provides technical assistance for that program in conjunction with KDHE.  As part of the grant, CHCSEK implemented the Healthy Heart Ambassador (HHA) program, which is a CDC recognized lifestyle change program and Self Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring (SMBP) program for patients with hypertension.  CHCSEK started their HHA program in February of 2022, not realizing that one year later, the HHA program would not only change the lives of their patients, but also the lives of their staff.

  • Genesis Family Health Sews the Seeds of Health Using CHWs

    At the start of the new year in 2023 Genesis Family Health looked at the issues facing their community and wanted to find ways to use community outreach to engage their expectant mothers in health education.  Their Care Team came up with the idea to gather maternity patients together to create baby gifts or to make items needed for their new babies and wanted to use those gatherings to share health education with expectant mothers.

    Each summer, as the start of school nears, many clinics report an overwhelming volume of students seeking school physicals, sports physicals or who need immunizations to attend school. Often this unusually high demand for preventative services in August can result in interruptions to the flow of normal operations in the clinic. KHC has partnered with KHA and KDHE to encourage parents to seek childhood immunizations and wellness visits this summer, before the Back to School rush. 
  • Nemaha Valley Community Hospital Addresses Health Equity in Local Amish Community

    In April 2017, church elders from the nearby Amish community met with two physicians and a social worker from Nemaha Valley Community Hospital (NVCH) to discuss concerns about recent poor birth outcomes in both mothers and babies in the local Amish community.  A meeting between physicians and church elders to solve health care issues is not the norm in healthcare, but in this case, was the most logical and culturally appropriate means to address an issue, which was vital to both the Amish community and the hospital.
