CHER - Community Health Education and Resources
Community Health Education & Resources (CHER) is the Inland Northwest’s premier resource for public and professional health education including health screenings, rural outreach programs, wellness classes and health education programs for health care providers and the community.
A community’s health resources are often scattered across different entities, making it difficult for community members to easily access all that is available to them. Through a collaboration of our partner hospitals, Community Health Education & Resources (CHER) remedies this challenge by providing a central location for public and professional health education, screenings, interventions and wellness assessments.
CHER was formed when Spokane’s leading hospitals teamed up to pool their collective health education resources. A service of Inland Northwest Health Services, we provide the region with myriad public and professional health education opportunities, including:
- Diabetes education
- Classes on health and wellness
- CPR Classes
- Health Screenings
- Tobacco Cessation
- Parenting and childbirth classes
- Professional Education
We offer many of our classes, health screenings, forums and other programs remotely through our partnership with Northwest TeleHealth. Urban and rural communities alike need access to important health information, and our ability to offer the classes via video conferencing ensures that everyone has access to the information they need.
Mission and Vision:
CHER strives to be an industry leader for innovative health care solutions. With the support of our member health systems, our goal is to provide unique and affordable services that will benefit the entire health care system.
