Promoting Healthy Choices: Strategies for Promotores de Salud
The workshop will be based on an online e-learning training program for promotores de salud and community health workers offered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health called Promoting Healthy Choices and Community Changes. We will present Unit A: Understanding Healthy Choices and Unit B: Helping People Make Healthy Choices from the e-learning program to guide promotores in practicing these core competencies related to understanding how people make health-related decisions, communicating effectively with others about their health, and motivating people to make healthy behavior changes. At the end of the workshop, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion with the HHS and OMH logos.
