The American Cancer Society seeks to promote the use of community health workers throughout their midwest region. Wilder Research conducted an assessment designed to increase understanding of the community health worker workforce in four states: Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. WR also conducted a study to demonstrate the economic value of investing in cancer outreach via community health workers.
Wilder Research operates as an independent research unit of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation. As a nonprofit research and evaluation group, we work with nonprofits, foundations, and government entities to inform decisions and improve lives.
