Community Health Education Fellowship (CHEF)
The Community Health Education Fellowship (CHEF) Program, as part of the COVID-19 Health Equity Response Public Health Education Subcommittee’s efforts, empowers youth, ages 18-30, with resources and education to fight COVID-19. The youth are from the 22 Houston communities that have the highest percentages of COVID cases and are in the most need of information and resources. As part of the CHEF program, the youth fellows promote public health in those same 22 communities and are certified as Community Health Workers. In addition, they work with experts in developing the dynamic curriculum that is shared with the communities.
