About Us

The Arizona Community Health Workers Association (AzCHOW) was established in 2001, as a professional association of CHWs with the mission to provide a forum to inform and unite culturally diverse community health workers of all disciplines, to strengthen the professional development of the field through resource sharing and collaborative opportunities with community, government, health, and educational institutions. 

"Community Health Workers are essential to the well-being of Arizonans across the state."

On this episode of the podcast, we are joined by Floribella Redondo, pioneer in the community health worker community in Arizona, and president of the Arizona Community Health Workers Association (AzCHOW). We talk about the difference between community health representatives, community health workers, and promotoras, and the beginnings of the work in Arizona. We also dive into what it took to pass legislation, the patience systems change takes.
