“We had long dreamed of integrating Promotores into our migrant health services…

With the assistance of MHP Salud, that dream became a reality. We rely on MHP Salud for everything from orienting our staff to the Camp Health Aide model, to providing us with ‘user friendly’ training materials, to developing culturally appropriate methods of evaluating community needs and the impact of our peer education activities from the perspective of the Promotores themselves.”

Susan Bauer, Director of Program Development, Community Health Partnership of Illinois

CHWs are a Critical Lifeline in the Era of Expensive Prescriptions

March 7th, 2019|

Community Health Workers, trust-worthy liaisons between medical professionals and their community, are a great resource for patients combating the negative consequences associated with skipping prescription drugs. CHWs can educate those who can’t afford their prescription drugs on how to lead healthier lifestyles and help stress the importance of managing chronic diseases.

Elder Health in the United States

February 15th, 2019|

The average lifespan of Americans has been steadily increasing over the years, resulting in a growing number of adults that live to be over 65 years old. Older adults are also becoming increasingly diverse: this population is expected to transform from 7.9% to 22% Hispanic/Latino by the year 2060. As this population grows and changes, it’s important to identify and address their unique health challenges, to support safely and happily growing old at home.

Mental Health CHW-led Programs Show Promise in Latino Communities

February 7th, 2019|

The lack of access to information and services in Spanish can prevent many Latinos from seeking care. Many CHW-led interventions recruit bi-lingual members of the community, allowing for correct interpretation of information, effective education and a way to address stigma. More importantly, it allows individuals who face language barriers the path to express their mental health concerns without fear of misinterpretation.
