A Community Resource Navigator Model: Utilizing Student Volunteers to Integrate Health and Social Care in a Community Health Center Setting

While unmet social needs are major drivers of health outcomes, most health systems are not fully integrated with the social care sector to address them. 

This case study describes the development and implementation of a model utilizing student volunteer community resource navigators to help patients connect with community-based organizations. The authors then detail initial implementation outcomes and practical considerations for future work.
