At 22,053,900 projected workers in 2020, the healthcare industry makes up the largest segment of the United States’ economy. Not just doctors and nurses, the healthcare industry also broadly encompasses the nonclinical, community and social service, and support positions that comprise 42% of the healthcare workforce.

The community health worker has taken on new importance as hospitals look to extend themselves and bring healthcare services to patients where they live. Among the occupations with the largest percentage increases across the country, office workers such as medical office specialists, office supervisors, and medical records technicians have seen their positions adapt and grow. And, a new position, often referred to as patient navigator or patient representative, has been created to facilitate smooth coordination of health services for patients.

Thursday, September 12, 2013 (Bronx, NY)—Anita Bhattacharjee took a rather selfless
approach to higher education. She waited until her children had received the kind of
education she valued so highly before returning to the classroom herself at age 52.
After graduating from the CUNY CareerPATH Community Health Worker Certificate
Program in December of 2012, Anita was the first member of her cohort to enroll for a
regular associate’s degree course load at Eugenio María de Hostos Community
College. “I was a single mother who always made sure my three children studied hard for school, and with that, my daughter graduated with honors at the age of 16. With more
determination and hard work, my twin boys went on to attain college degrees.
Nevertheless, my education was always at the back of my mind. I wanted them to
graduate first, but having my college degree was something I always wanted,” Anita

The CUNY CareerPATH Community Health Worker Certificate Program trains residents of South Bronx and Northern Manhattan who meet the eligibility requirements to join the healthcare workforce. The training consists of 120 hours centered on community health worker core competencies, and contemporary health issues such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease and chronic disease self-management. An additional 60 hours are devoted to helping participants develop their academic skills in reading, writing and math.
