Community Health Representatives

The vision of the CHR program is to provide quality health and prevention outreach services to our Tribal Membership, to preserve the confidentiality and dignity of each member served.  To act as advocates for our membership whenever needed, and to represent the Grand Traverse Band as ambassadors with the surrounding communities and events.

CHR's are the people who have the closest, regular contact with membership.  They are liaisons within the Tribal structure as well as surrounding communities in which they serve.  There are many activities that are shared with the Elders department, Youth programs, Camp Alden, involvement in diabetic foot clinics, annual health fairs, flu clinics and transporting clients to appointments. Please contact your Community Health Representative for additional services.
