Community Health Education Center

CHEC is going virtual. Stay tuned for classes and schedules.

The Community Health Education Center (CHEC) is the centerpiece for public health education in the Northeast Region of Massachusetts.

Training and Educational Services Include:

  • Cross-training, education and professional development for local or regional educators and their supervisors
  • Comprehensive certification programs
  • Community health worker education
  • Health modules
  • Advanced seminars and workshops
  • Networking luncheons

Partnerships are critical for caring for our community; so working with regional advisory boards, outreach educators and other constituencies is a central part of what we do. As part of that, we look to represent and work with the diverse groups from areas around the region where we, or those we train, work.

CHEC specializes in providing cross–training, education and professional development opportunities for community health workers. As adult learners, participants are engaged in various learning tracks to acquire or broaden their scope of knowledge, skills and cultural competence. We offer a comprehensive certificate program, community health education, health modules, seminars and workshops. Participants exchange respective information while connecting with other community resources, learn more about current public health issues and establish peer support.
