“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.”
