Continuing a Legacy of Achievement Post Service
Community HealthCorps is excited to share the post-service plans of our most recent graduating class. As NACHC’s AmeriCorps program, the Community HealthCorps strives to train and develop our AmeriCorps members in the areas of cultural competency, patient services, communication, problem solving, and team building in an effort to create a national pipeline for careers in health-related fields. Based on survey data from our most recently graduate class (87% response rate), Community HealthCorps Members continue in the footsteps of past alumni by setting a high bar in their post service aspirations.

Community HealthCorps Alumni Recognized for Excellence in Service
Community HealthCorps is thrilled to congratulate two 2012-2013 alumni, April Haydon (pictured below at left) and Maryam Qayumi (pictured at right), as the recent recipients of the Molina-Community Champions Award and the Governor’s Service Award, respectively. Both young women were recognized with these awards for dedication and impact on the local community during their service with Community HealthCorps. “As the largest health-focused national AmeriCorps program, we strive to provide our AmeriCorps members with an opportunity to think big throughout their service, explains Jason Patnosh, Community HealthCorps National Director, “whether it is starting a new initiative to get community members excited about healthy living or applying to dental school in pursuit of a new found passion for primary care, a big part of the Community HealthCorps Member experience is going outside of your comfort zone. We couldn’t be more proud of April and Maryam for doing just that.”
