About Community Health Champions

The Central Health Community Health Champions program brings together diverse community members from across Travis County to learn about, discuss, and collaborate on our work to improve the health of Central Texas. Through this 5-month program, we want to create the next generation of informed community health leaders in Travis County.

Topics covered throughout the program revolve around various health disparities and how Central Health and about 200 health organizations, nonprofits, and hospitals come together to address them.

So far, the program has created a tight-knit group of about 150 Community Health Champions.

2020 Community Health Champions Program

The 2020 application period is open May 1 – June 14, 2020. Selected applications will be notified the week of July 6.
