Rappahannock-Rapidan Community Health Workers (CHWs) were hired to help our residents receive the services they need. Some CHWs were placed within partnering community agencies. CHWs assist residents with many things that affect their health and they provide educational materials and deliver presentations at health fairs, community locations, and organizations that request specific topics.

Community health is the mutual well-being of community members. RRHD uses metrics to understand the health of our community. The data help us to plan, manage, and define areas to take action to improve health.
