The Arte de Sobrevivir support group aims to promote healing among women who are primary or secondary survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and/or stalking. This guide builds on the existing strengths of Latina women and utilizes culturally informed tools and approaches. Participants are not only provided with information and form supportive networks with other women in their community, but they also engage in arts and craft projects, which can open space for discussion and healing.
The activities in this booklet are designed to get everyone involved. They are a great way to build a sense of teamwork and they are also a lot of fun!

Community Health Workers & Hypertension and Heart Health Interventions: A Resource for Program Managers and AdministratorsJeff Newsome2019-10-16T18:22:46+00:00
Community Health Workers, Hypertension and Heart Health Interventions: A Resource for Program Managers and Administrators is a resource for Community Health Worker program managers and administrators. It explains how Community Health Worker-led intervention programs can positively impact patients who have hypertension. About 75 million American adults (1 in every 3) have high blood pressure. Although high blood pressure can be easily detected and can be controlled with lifestyle changes and medication, almost a third of individuals with hypertension don’t know they have it, and only about half have it under control. Due to their close understanding of and trust from the communities they serve, CHWs can be particularly strong champions for patients with hypertension and/or at risk of heart disease. This resource includes approaches that have been successful, a list of external resources, and additional information that will be useful to program managers and administrators looking to build on or begin a CHW-led hypertension and heart health intervention program.
