Health Promotions Program

Join CARECEN SF’s Promotoras de Salud to increase healthy eating and active living while exploring how culture and tradition improve community health.

Increase healthy eating and active living, all while having fun!

Promotoras de Salud/ Health Promoters facilitate peer-to-peer and hands-on learning in a linguistically accessible, fun and welcoming environment. All of our weekly community health promotion activities are based on a popular education model that combines science with the cultural assets of the families we partner with. By engaging in community building and peer-to-peer dialogue, we share ideas and activities aimed at preventing and managing chronic diseases that disproportionally affect our communities, including diabetes, obesity and early childhood cavities.

You and Your Family Can Access:

  • Cuerpo Sano workshops
  • Cooking classes
  • Dance and movement classes
  • Early childhood literacy classes
  • Monthly Cuerpo Sano family field trips
  • Dental screenings and fluoride varnish treatments for children birth to 5 years

All of our health promotion activities are FREE and in Spanish and English
