Pomona’s Promise Promoters Are Local Community Health Workers

by Shelby Nicole
Western University of Health Sciences

Pomona’s Promise Promoters serve in their community as highly skilled volunteers in the neighborhoods that they live in. A Promoter is a community leader who provides service from the heart. Promoters share information about health & well-being, help families find the resources they need, and help make our Pomona neighborhoods be a better place! We will be having our second training for Pomona’s Promise Promoters starting in April! If you would like more information, please email: Pomonaspromisepromoters@gmail.com

“Community health workers can really become that bridge between the community and clinic…”

The basis of the Pomona’s Promise Promoters is that the Promoters are from the community they serve! This means that they understand the daily lives of the individuals they reach out to. Pomona’s Promise Promoters have already provided physical activity classes at local health centers and work alongside nursing students from Western University of Health Sciences! We have big plans to expand our collaboration with healthcare providers and improve the reach of the services to the community.
