“Riñones, Tesoros (Kidneys, Treasures) Education Program for Community Health Workers aims to educate Hispanics at risk for kidney disease about the need for testing and steps they can take to protect their kidneys. The program is designed to help community health workers (CHWs) or “promotores de salud” educate Hispanics living with diabetes about kidney disease and kidney failure. The content is intended to complement existing diabetes education curricula, but it can also be used as a standalone program. CHWs can use this toolkit wherever they teach in their community, including community centers, hospitals, community health clinics, continuing education classes, schools, faith communities, or even homes.”
- The CHW ACTION Project
The ACTION project engages Community Health Workers and partner organizations to deliver more effective cancer education, training, and navigation. The project focuses on Colorectal, Cervical, and Breast Cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and survivorship.
