Find us in your community… or we’ll come to yours!

The Priority Partners Community Health Advocate (CHA) program is designed for Maryland residents who are interested in learning more about staying healthy and creating a healthy environment for their families. The CHAs are local residents who have been trained by Priority Partners on a variety of health-related topics. They know the communities and have established contacts with neighborhood organizations and government agencies to interact on a grassroots level.

Our CHAs serve on collaborative health projects, participating in local health fairs and attending community events. Spanish-speaking CHAs are also available. Find out where they’ll be this month.

CHAs provide on-site support to help Priority Partners members with:

  • getting a new Priority Partners ID card
  • explaining health care benefits
  • getting outreach or management services
  • getting help with transportation
  • completing re-enrollment forms
  • changing their address
  • finding a PCP
  • joining the Consumer Advisory Board

Our CHAs will also come to your church, school, health department, or other facility to deliver no-cost health presentations and resources to groups of five or more. The presentations are available in English and Spanish.
