BUILD Community Health Worker (CHW) Griselda “Zelda” Funn, a Turnaround Tuesday graduate who works at University of Maryland Midtown Clinic, won the “People’s Choice” Award for her poster presentation at the 4th Annual Symposium on Home and Community Based Care. The symposium presented by the University of Maryland’s School of Nursing was well attended by nurses and social workers and other home and community based care providers. The poster was entitled “Recruitment, Training, and Placement of Community Health Workers in Baltimore City in the Global Budget Revenue Era.” Zelda was the only CHW in attendance, and was “very engaging” with visitors to the poster, telling stories and explaining the process of training and placement.
