The Adelante Promotores Conference aims to inspire, educate, and strengthen the Promotores & Community Health Worker workforce by providing tools and the space to connect and recharge. The Conference is one of the ways our Coalition supports the continuous efforts of Promotores & Community Health Workers to strengthen the health and wellness of their communities.
The conference includes a variety of workshops covering topics across three tracks: trending health topics, professional development, and self-care, as well as opportunities to network and hear from local leaders. Promotores and CHWs will enhance their skills, connect with peers, and advocate for their communities.
This year’s conference will also feature a new track for Promotor/Community Health Worker employers!
