Del Rey in Action!

Last week, I had the privilege and honor to attend LA Care's Health Promoters/Promotores Program Graduation. LA Care is one of many organizations worldwide that has embraced a grassroots method of training ordinary residents and teaching them to connect their community to the benefits of healthcare and the healthcare system.

The majority of graduates were from Del Rey. We extend our deepest thanks to the LA Care staff for training the Del Rey residents, but also recognize the Promotores for taking initiative, empowering themselves and making such a huge difference in their community! Congratulations to the following graduates:
