Healthy Communities

Healthy communities are a core aim of the San Diego County Promotores Coalition. Healthy communities are those with the expertise and knowledge to access health services and resources, creating a community conducive to health. This year’s conference focuses on unifying Promotores and Community Health Workers (CHWs) in creating and maintaining healthy communities. How do we create healthy communities? Invest in Promotores and CHWs. Promotores and CHWs effectively educate and link community members to health resources and services.

To create healthy communities, we must create health systems that look beyond the clinic and reach individuals where they are in a culturally competent way to overcome barriers preventing communities from reaching their full health potential.
