The Westchester County Department of Health (WCDH) is working with community organizations to develop a health education program (Know Better, Live Better) to promote health and wellness across the county. We are seeking a cohort of Trusted Messengers to help us spread the word among members of their communities about preventing COVID-19, chronic disease management, vaccination, locating local healthcare resources, and making decisions that will promote better health.
Trusted Messengers will receive a on-week training and work with WCDH and partners to deliver easy-to-understand health education to their communities over 4-6 months. Trusted Messengers do not have to be health experts, but we are looking for individuals who have strong knowledge about Westchester communities and are enthusiastic about health! All Trusted Messengers will sign a contract with WCDH and will receive a $2000 stipend for participation (estimated $30/hour rate).
