“Being a community health worker allowed me to grow personally and develop abilities and skills that I would have not imagined possessing before. During my personal growth and the training, I realized that I could provide so much and truly help my community.”
Bringing Whole Person Care to the Community
Promotores Academy equips community health workers, who are actively promoting a health message to their communities, with tools to further build their capacity to serve as examples of what it means to live a wholistic life. By training community health workers, the Academy serves to promote the wellbeing and self-sufficiency of communities.
Loma Linda University and El Sol Neighborhood Educational Center (ESNEC) have partnered together to develop a Promotores/Community Health Worker (CHW) Academy. This partnership strives to further establish a high level of consistency and performance of community health workers.
