  • Offers new information on key health issues including chronic conditions management, promoting healthy eating and active living, understanding trauma, and promoting the health of formerly incarcerated people

The second edition also contains short educational videos that illustrate essential CHW concepts and skills and reveals how to avoid common missteps.
