The CHEN list: It’s like shouting only quieter and more people will hear you.

Posted on January 4, 2012


CHEN Listserv will help you reach almost 1000 school health professionals

Since 2006, ASHA has hosted the Comprehensive Health Education Network (CHEN) listserv, a free service that allows subscribers to broadcast and receive information relevant to their work in various health fields.

The list is available for free to members and non-members, and it currently reaches more than 900 email inboxes. From there, we know it travels to an immeasurable number of people through CHEN subscribers’ networks.

Like National Public Radio, ASHA operates with very little funding from the federal government. This year, the restructuring of DASH means even less money will come our way. For that reason, we are asking for tax-deductible donations in any amount to help cover the costs ASHA incurs while administering the CHEN list.

Make a Donation

If you work within a federal agency or large nonprofit and have several subscribers to CHEN, consider adding ASHA/CHEN to your annual budget. And if you have budget funds remaining at year-end, those could be used to support CHEN.

Thank you for your continued support of ASHA and the CHEN list. We recognize that the CHEN list provides a valuable service to many federal, private and nonprofit organizations, and we hope that it leads you to even more valuable resources.
