As Community Health Workers, of many different job descriptions, we have known this for many years. But I think as a best kept secret Community Health Workers are out of the box...I hope this is the beginning of a tipping point in the USA medical care delivery system towards a focus on primary, secondary and tertiary prevention "WELLNESS"
