The San Diego County Promotores Coalition (SDCPC) started as the Promotores Education Committee (PEC) in 2009 and is comprised of employers, researchers, governmental agencies, educators, community based organizations and Promotores/Community Health Workers (CHWs). To widen the scope of PEC, the SDCPC was formed to include all partners working with Promotores/CHWs in San Diego County and create a space for agencies and Promotores/CHWs to come together and inform each other’s work.
The mission of the SDCPC is to promote, value and recognize the work of Promotores and support organizations that work with Promotores to increase access and services to residents of San Diego County. The SDCPC coordinates the annual Adelante Promotores Conference, and other events regarding the Promotores/CHWs. These events provide opportunities for professional development and increase capacity in emerging health issues for Promotores as well as opportunities for engaging with other community members and organizations.
The SDCPC meets every third Wednesday of the month from 12-2pm at various locations. For more information about our meetings and upcoming events please contact Arnold Noriega, California Department of Public Health – Office of Binational Border Health, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (619) 688-6483.
