Inaugural Class

Get to know the first-ever Community Health Champions group


Community Health Champions is an initiative by Central Health to bring together diverse community members from across Travis County to learn about, discuss, and collaborate on our work to improve the health of Central Texas. The first-ever group of Health Champions completed their program in November of 2016 and remain connected to Central Health as Alumni of the program.

Now in its second year, Central Health is recruiting for the class of 2017, who will participate in a series of workshops, activities, and collaborative events with alumni of the program. Individuals who reside in Travis County are encouraged to apply. Applications will be open through January 20, 2017.

Central Health will host two recruitment lunches to provide more information about the program and answer any questions. Join us to learn more.
