iCare Community Health Worker / Health Coach Jarvis WestiCare congratulates Community Health Worker / Health Coach Jarvis West. He was featured in Wisconsin Public Health Association's WPHA News newsletter in celebration of National Community Health Worker Recognition Month.

iCare makes Health Coaches available to members. Health Coaches like Jarvis are Community Health Workers (CHWs) who will visit the member in their home and assist them with specific Social Determinants of Health, such as housing, behavioral health services, community education, food, clothing banks, and access to social service agencies, to name a few. CHWs are assigned to members by ZIP code. CHWs are experts in the neighborhoods where their members live so they can recommend the most appropriate supportive services.

To learn more about iCare Health Coaches, check out the article on page 5 of a recent iCare member newsletter

You'll notice Jarvis is wearing a hat. He actually wears many hats at iCare, including helping members after a stay in a hospital or skilled nursing facility to keep them from needing to go back. He also  leads weekly Living Well With Chronic Conditions classes.

Jarvis is also highly active in the community. He is Vice President of the AMANI United Neighborhood Association, a resident-led community group that formed as a result of the Building Neighborhood Capacity Program (BNCP).

Congrats to you, Jarvis!
