San Diego County Promotores Coalition

Present at the Annual Adelante Promotores Conference

The Adelante Promotores Conference has three types of workshops: 1) Professional Development, 2) Health-related Topics and 3) Personal Development. Both professional and personal development workshop sessions are one and a half hours (90 minutes). The Health-related Topic workshop session is one hour (60 minutes.) The professional development session educates and updates Promotores on core roles and skills. Refer to the C3 report pages 37 – 40 for more details. Health-related Topic session focuses on increasing the knowledge of Promotores on relevant health-related topics to their San Diego communities, such as mental health, nutrition, chronic diseases, and others. Finally, the personal development session is aimed at developing capacity and skills of Promotores to deal with the needs of their Promotor(a) work.
