Promotoras and Community Health Workers (CHW’s) play a critical role in promoting community-based health education and prevention, particularly in communities that have been historically underserved by the U.S. health care system. Promotoras and CHW’s represent a rich spectrum of characteristics that makes them the bridge between health care institutions, professional providers and community residents in need of health care services.
Each year, Vision y Compromiso hosts a Promotoras and Community Health Workers conference to convene promotoras, community health workers, program coordinators and agencies from various parts of CA and the nation to celebrate the accomplishments of these wonderful community leaders. The conference will take place December 3-4, 2010 at the Marriott Hotel & Convention Center (see flyer). Please call the number on the flyer if you have any questions or require additional information.
