The Promotoras group was founded in 2008 to educate women to be community health workers and promote cancer screenings in the Hispanic community. Through funding from the Harrington Trust, the Promotoras program was expanded to include outreach on diabetes and mental health. Promotoras learn about healthy eating and exercise, checking glucose and taking medications as directed. Dressed in bright pink T-shirts, they reach out to educate friends, neighbors and family members and distribute information on preventing diabetes and its complications.
