Dear Partners, Stakeholders, and Friends of the Minnesota Community Health Worker Alliance:
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am excited to announce a new chapter in the work of the Alliance: Effective September 15, LaTanya Black will serve as our new Executive Director. LaTanya has worked in the health care sector for over 25 years and has a breadth of experience in effectively developing, operating, and promoting community engagement strategies and programs. She is a community health worker certificate holder with experience as a CHW, CHW supervisor, and owner of Compassionate Care Services. In addition, Ms. Black is a seasoned public speaker and presenter who is passionate about raising awareness around the essential contributions of community health workers.
Ms. Black has been actively involved with the Alliance for over four years and has come to know our organization well, attending local and national conferences and training and serving as the Alliance’s Community Engagement Specialist and Board Vice-chair. We look forward to a bright future with Ms. Black’s leadership, building on the solid foundation created by Ms. Joan Cleary and Ms. Anne Ganey and offer them our profound thanks for their leadership and dedication.
Secondly, I wish to share with you that the Alliance has entered into a shared services and co-location agreement with Stratis Health. The Alliance office and future trainings will now be located at 2901 Metro Drive, Suite 400- Bloomington 55425. This agreement allows for joint programming and future collaboration opportunities.
I am excited about the future of the Alliance and greatly look forward to working with Ms. Black in her new role as our Executive Director.
On behalf of our Board, thank you for all you do in support of the MN Community Health Worker Alliance. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
