California Promotoras Month

(Assemblyman hosts breakfast)….It was Friday morning at Las Chabela’s in Brawley.

Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia was the host for the annual California Promotoras Month. The event pays tribute to the contributions of community health workers, the promotoras, and volunteers in the Imperial Valley. Garcia said it was important to celebrate the Promotoras service and the value they add to the community. He said by helping people remain healthy and providing access to care for those who are sick, they are in the front lines of health promotion and disease prevention. Representatives from the offices of State Senator Ben Hueso and Congressman Juan Vargas joined the Assemblyman in presenting each health worker and volunteer with a special recognition for the work they do in the community.
