Announcing Promoting Healthy Choices and Community Changes:
An E-learning Program for Promotores de Salud!
Think Cultural Health is pleased to announce the release of Promoting Healthy Choices and Community Changes: An E-learning Program for Promotores de Salud. This free e-learning program is offered exclusively online in Spanish and English and aims to build the capacity of promotores de salud to promote individual- and community-level changes towards good health. Promoting Healthy Choices and Community Changes is comprised of four units that will provide promotores de salud with the necessary tools to become agents of change at both the individual and community levels. For each unit completed, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion.
Promotores de salud are culturally and linguistically competent messengers, advocates, and educators due to their intimate knowledge of their community’s culture and needs. Thus, promotores de salud are well positioned to effect positive health changes in their communities. By delivering health education that aligns with individuals’ cultural beliefs and language preferences, promotores de salud can empower community members to make changes in their lives and in their communities to enjoy better health.
Promoting Healthy Choices and Community Changes builds upon this capacity of promotores de salud to empower community members. It is designed for any promotor de salud, regardless of years of experience or the type of outreach in which they are engaged (for example, nutrition, cancer, women’s health).
Think Cultural Health has produced a creative and practical program, based on expert and target user feedback. We hope that you will find this e-learning program a valuable and engaging tool for advancing health equity, improving quality of care, and reducing health disparities.
