Promotoras de Salud - Health and Wellness

The Health and Wellness program (Promotoras de Salud) promotes the importance of healthy living while providing Latino families the motivation and connections to create healthy habits.

Since 2008, La Paz has successfully applied the Promotores de Salud community health worker model to address the unique health challenges of the Latino community.

Community health workers (CHW), or lay health educators who are natural leaders in the community, serve as “bridges” between service providers and Latinos who lack medical services. This model improves the quality and access to healthcare through the use of culturally and linguistically appropriate approaches.
