Promotoras/es exchanges and binational conferences

Binational Promotores Conference

 

Every year, the Health Initiatives of the Americas, a program of the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, in partnership with other agencies, organizes te Binational Promotores Conference. The objective of the conference is to relate the work of community health workers, also known as promotores de salud, in the United States with those in Mexico to improve the health of migrants as well as develop a binational model of promotores.

The Binational Promotores Conference is held once every year.  Through this conference, binational work and collaboration is encouraged, developing and expanding networks for future collaborations, including the exchange of educational materials and other resources.

Our last conference took place on March 12, 2019 in Oakland, California. 200 people participated from all across California. See below for presentations from this year’s conference:
