Our Coalition

The San Diego County Promotores Coalition (SDCPC) is a group aimed to advance the work of Promotores to reach underserved populations and decrease health disparities. We started as the Promotores Education Committee (PEC) in 2009 and comprised employers, researchers, governmental agencies, educators, community-based organizations, and Promotores/Community Health Workers (CHWs). To widen the scope of PEC, the SDCPC was formed in 2015 to include all partners working with Promotores/CHWs in San Diego County and create a space for agencies and Promotores/CHWs to come together share, and inform each other’s work.

Our Members

The core of the SDCPC is to ensure Promotores/CHWs are included as active members of the coalition.  We have started a membership drive to ensure all Promotores/CHWs in San Diego County are an integral part of the coalition.

Promotores and Community Health Workers (CHWs)

Promotores are known as community leaders, characterized by servicio de corazón – service from the heart and desire to serve their community. Promotores are peer leaders who share the same experiences, language and culture as the communities they serve yielding a unique trust and credibility.
