CHRISTUS Health is the recipient of grant funding from Public Health AmeriCorps, a collaboration between AmeriCorps and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Two main goals of this partnership are to: 1) Address public health needs of local communities by providing support in state and local public health settings and advancing more equitable health outcomes for underserved communities; and 2) Create pathways to good quality public health-related careers through onsite experience and training, with a focus on recruiting AmeriCorps members who reflect the communities in which they will serve.​

To this end, CHRISTUS Health will engage with individuals to serve their communities as AmeriCorps service members. Members serve for a minimum of a one-year term and will not be considered employees of CHRISTUS Health. A living allowance, health insurance, and end of service education award (managed by Public Health AmeriCorps) are provided, but other CHRISTUS Health employee benefits will not be offered to individuals participating in this program.
