Latino Cancer Research Network Is Home to ‘Promotora of the Year’
A “promotora“—or trained community health educator—from the Institute for Health Promotion Research’s Latino cancer research network has been named “Promotora of the Year” by Spanish-language publication El Latino.
Alma Sandoval is one of six network promotoras from the IHPR’s network, Redes En Acción, who have been working at regional sites across the nation to increase Latino cancer survivors’ access to LIVESTRONG’s national navigation services. Redes En Acción is directed by IHPR director Dr. Amelie Ramirez. The promotora project is coordinated by IHPR researcher Sandra San Miguel.
Sandoval works for the San Ysidro Health Center in San Diego, a Redes En Acción regional site.
The IHPR, based at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, is the team behind SaludToday.
